Totally tubular: Trinity digs potato patch for Food Helpers

A group of 40 Trinity High School students tromped through rows of dirt Wednesday morning lugging blue, 5-gallon buckets, in search of potatoes.

Their mission: to harvest spuds from the South Strabane Township property that they would donate to the Greater Washington County Food Bank & Food Helpers.

The students, from the vo-ag, life skills and autistic support classes, spent the next few hours filling their buckets with Kennebec and chieftain potatoes, dumping the potatoes into bins, filling 10-pound bags, and loading them onto a utility trailer.
