Rhinelander Area Food Pantry looking for potato pickers
Volunteers are needed to help pick potatoes for the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry Tuesday, Sept. 23, from 3:30 to 6 p.m. The University of Wisconsin Agricultural Research Station in Starks donates the potatoes annually for distribution to RAFP customers. The “Pickers” are allowed to take a few pounds home to eat, so volunteers are reminded to bring a container. Almost six tons of potatoes were collected last year.
Directions to the picking field: Hwy C (past the Ice Arena) east for 6.5 miles, then south on Rominsky Road
