AFAC will be bagging potatoes on Friday, August 29, 12 Noon – 2 PM:
We’ll deliver potatoes bought at bulk prices to the outside patio by the garden and parking lot (weather permitting).  Volunteers will put potatoes into family-size bags for our clients.  We encourage everyone (young children are welcome) to join us for this activity.  You can drop by for 5 minutes or stay for a full hour.
