A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST
Big Idaho Potato
Truck Hits the Road
The Big Idaho Potato Truck will once again hit the road this year,
traveling across the country promoting Idaho’s most famous
agricultural product, the Idaho potato. During its journey, the Big
Idaho Potato Truck will help dozens of charities better serve
their communities through its charitable program, “A Big Helping.”
During its seven-month tour, the Truck will travel approximately
28,000 miles and be heralded as the main attraction in several
parades and festivals across the country.
In November, the Truck will be part of the entourage of vehicles
transporting the 60-foot Capitol Christmas Tree from Payette
National Forest in Idaho to Washington, D.C. The Big Idaho Potato
Truck will deliver hundreds of ornaments made by Idaho schoolchildren and participate in local events scheduled to take place
along the cross-country journey.
The Big Idaho Potato Truck Tour has always had a charitable
component to it, and now in its second year, “A Big Helping” is the
Truck’s “personal” way of assisting local charities across the country.
During its seven-month tour, the Truck’s management team will
identify local charities to receive a $500 donation via a Signature
Board that’s set up at the events the Truck visits. Past recipients
have included food banks, children’s hospitals and animal shelters.
“We already know that the Truck brings smiles to people wherever it goes, but now it’s also helping people and that feels pretty
good,” adds Muir.
