Potato harvest to feed hungry
Latest

OAKWOOD – “One potato, two potato.” Members and friends at the Oakwood Twin Oaks United Methodist Church aren’t counting potatoes like that. They are counting more like “One ton of potatoes, two tons of potatoes” and some sore backs.

Dailey’s Digger and a group from Twin Oaks are harvesting a potato crop from a four-acre plot of land donated by Mike and Connie Kohart of rural Oakwood to be used for growing potatoes. These potatoes are being donated to food pantries in 18 counties of northwest Ohio by The Society of St. Andrew, a Christian, nonprofit, hunger relief organization, through the Seagate Food Bank. Paulding County is one of the counties that receives this produce.

The potatoes were planted and harvested by members of Twin Oaks United Methodist Church of Oakwood. The 2012 harvest represents the second for the feeding ministry of the Society of St. Andrew.
