New Life Church giving away 40,000 pounds of potatoes to community
After receiving 40,000 pounds of potatoes, New Life Church is giving away potatoes to anyone who wants some.
Convoy of Hope has delivered a lot of different foods to the church in Escanaba, allowing the church to host food distributions for the community. The church was planning on hosting another food distributuion Tuesday, but that unexpectedly turned into a potato giveaway.
The Salvation Army has picked up two pallets of potatoes to use in their food pantry. The church also says people from all over the U.P. have come to get potatoes.
“The food drives that we do and our potato drive, it’s for anyone in the community. It’s not just for those who maybe have a great need for food, but it’s for anybody to come and get what we have to offer because we want to bless our entire community.”
If you would like some potatoes, they are located in the New Life Church parking lot in Escanaba. They’re on a first come, first served basis.
