Potato Potahto

Produce From the Heart invites you to join them this Saturday in O’Neill for the annual potato harvest. Each harvest, farmers miss or skip a percentage of their crop, which then goes to waste. Produce From the Heart collects about 500 pounds per 100 yards they cover. The food collected is then donated to food banks and soup kitchens, helping hungry Nebraskans fill the void left by unemployment, underemployment, and poverty. The family-friendly event will provide drinks and snacks, but you are responsible for bringing your own lunch and dinner, depending on how much time you have to devote to the cause. Produce From the Heart will also provide gas money to anyone driving at least 3 passengers, or to anyone who is willing to bring a truck or trailer to transport the potatoes back to Lincoln. To learn more and to sign up for the event, go to
