!!!GET READY, AMERICA!!! Today, we launched our 2020 Big Idaho Potato Truck Tour. @RollingHillsCharter in Eagle, Idaho invited us to spread some ✨POTATO MAGIC✨ with the students, faculty, and parents as they gear up for IDAHO DAY next week. Frank Muir, the President of the Idaho Potato Commission, was able to present a National Geographic book featuring The Big Idaho Potato and a FULL signature board from our charitable component, A Big Helping. For every signature received, we donated a dollar towards the school’s PFA. A special thanks to Principal Shane, Vice Principal Emily, and 4th grade teacher, Marie for having us. We had so much fun with you and your students and faculty. ✨🥔✨
From Boise, the truck and tater Team will travel around 35,000 miles and visit close to 100 cities over the next six months. During that time, the Tater Team will identify local charities to raise awareness and funds for.
“Everywhere this truck goes people are pulling out their cellphones taking pictures of it, selfies, videos, and they help promote Id aho potatoes," said Frank Muir, president and CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission. "It also becomes part of their American experience with Idaho."
