John Hein of Sowinski Farms in Rhinelander came up with the donation idea. He says he hopes these potatoes provide several meals to those who are working hard to return to “normalcy.”
“Someday, our area may need the same kind of assistance, so it’s nice to be able to help,” Hein says.
Monetary donations from four Wisconsin-based groups are paying for the freight costs: Ansay and Associates in Neenah, Wis,; Grace Fellowship in Bryant, Wis.; the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association (WPVGA) in Antigo, Wis; Sowinski Trucking, LLC, in Rhinelander, Wis. Sowinski Trucking, LLC is also providing the trucks and drivers.
