NAPO Washington State volunteers sorted potatoes for two hours for Food Lifeline in Seattle. We had a lot of fun, despite the cold!

Sorting potatoes...?  Sounds much like the military punishment of peeling potatoes.  Glad you all had a good time with the project.  m

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho LOL. Yes, sorting potatoes 🙃. Food Lifeline is a wholesaler to other food banks. So my colleagues and I were sorting potatoes out of those huge white plastic sacks into the crates - app. 40 pounds of potatoes per crate - for distribution to other agencies. We were checking for ones which were poor quality and needed to be composted rather than eaten. Lauren

That's a new one to me I thought a bag of potatoes had character for all the different sizes.

Lauren Williams, CPO, CVPO when I saw the title of your blog I was expecting it to be something related to potatoes, so I was surprised when it was literally about sorting potatoes ....... LOL

George Souto Ah yes, if only I were clever enough and good enough a writer to make some wise observation about sorting potatoes, organizing, and life... Lauren

I need to Google it.

Endre Barath, Jr. It was a lot of fun. We were there for a pre-arranged two hours: I was startled when the timer rang, it went by much much more quickly than I expected. Lauren
