Making a Difference, One Potato Meal at a Time

For the second year in a row, the Wisconsin potato industry joined forces to help alleviate world hunger. Over 250 volunteers, many with ties to the Wisconsin potato industry, packed over 100,000 potato-based meals for the charitable organization, Feed My Starving Children.

Preparing for Potato Storage
Harvest season has begun and that means time is short for making final preparations before loading storage facilities. Inspection, maintenance, cleaning and sanitation of a storage facility are essential for a successful storage season. For details on storage preparation, see the August 2012 edition of The Badger Common’Tater.
