Beaumont, TX April 4, 2013-One of H-E-B’s major supplier of potatoes, Mountain King, has issued a One Million Pound Potato Challenge that would provide Texas Food Banks with one full trailer load of fresh 10 lbs. bags of Mountain King russet potatoes. Approximate weight of load is 40,000 lbs. in 10 lbs. bags.
Eddie Garcia, H-E-B Food Assistance Program says,” [This is] a great donation from our friends at Mountain King working with our procurement Team and support of our Great H-E-B customers.”
For a set period of weeks, for every pound of potatoes H-E-B customers purchase of Mountain King potatoes, they will be matched pound-for-pound for donations to the seventeen Texas Food Banks that are currently assisted by our H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program.
