Sweet Success: Minnesotans Like Their Sweet Potatoes

February 10, 2014 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Do Minnesotans like sweet potatoes? If the speed at which they are moving out of our warehouse is any indication—the answer is YES!

Thanks to a generous donor, Second Harvest Heartland was able to bring in its first ever truckload of sweet potatoes from a local farmer in Wisconsin last week. Within days, they were repacked into individual-sized bags by volunteers at our Golden Valley facility and immediately began moving out the door to be delivered to our agency partner programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our agency partners seem to be pleased at the nutrition and variety the sweet potatoes bring in the dead of winter.

As we work to collect and distribute more fresh and wholesome food than ever, this success is oh-so sweet!
