Senator Bill Hansell (R-Athena) expressed his thanks to Oregon’s potato growers, who donated 36,000 pounds of potatoes – or 18 tons – to the annual Capitol Food Drive.
Oregon's potato growers play a very important role in Oregon's agriculture economy. I am so grateful to the farmers who came together to make this significant donation to Oregon's families in need," said Hansell. Oregon potato growers have made a similar-sized donation to the annual food drive at Oregon's Capitol building every year in recent memory. Read full press release here.
