THE “PRO-POTATO” MOVEMENT

Join us in our “Pro Potato” Movement by bringing your potato donation to the Wash Dem Office at 132 North Main Street in West Bend.

Recently, Wisconsin legislators proposed restrictions on the foods that can be purchased through food assistance programs, including restrictions on the purchase of certain types of potatoes.

Potatoes are an important source of nutrition and are an economical way to fill a family’s meal. Complicating the purchase of potatoes appears to be petty and vengeful.

In order to address the issue, the Washington County Dems are having a “Potato Drive” during the month of June to pass on this important staple to our local “Full Shelf Food Pantry” and to draw attention to the importance of potatoes in our diet.

Please bring your potato donation to the Wash Dem Office at 132 North Main Street in West Bend so we can fill the front window with your contributions!
