The Great Big Idaho Potato Truck Rolls into Atlanta

As part of its cross-country tour, the Great Big Idaho Potato Truck spent a few days enjoying the southern hospitality in Atlanta, Ga. One of its first stops was the Atlanta Food Truck Park on 1850 Howell Mill Road. Lunchtime visitors had an opportunity to view this “spudtacular” vehicle and four local Meals On Wheels agencies received a total of 350,000 servings of Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, ready-to-serve, dehydrated potato products.

“We are very appreciative of everything Meals On Wheels does to help nourish more than 1,000 homebound seniors in the Atlanta area everyday,” says Karen Clark, communications manager, Idahoan Foods.  “We are very supportive of this organization and it is our sincere pleasure to be able to donate 350,000 servings of Idahoan Mashed Potatoes.”

More than 32,000 spectators turned out to see the Great Big Idaho Potato Truck in the Dunwoody Parade on the Fourth of July. The Dunwoody Parade is one of the largest parades in Georgia.
