A truckload of P.E.I. potatoes was accepted with enthusiasm in Fort McMurray, Alta., Wednesday.
The donation is a way for the industry on the Island to offer support to those affected by the wildfires, said Kendra Mills of the P.E.I. Potato Board.
The truck, carrying more than 22,600 kilograms of spuds, left P.E.I. last week and arrived Wednesday. The response to the potatoes has been wonderful with lots of positive comments on social media, Mills said.
