Mr. Potato Head to visit NFA food pantry today

Norwich – Mr. Potato Head will make a guest appearance today from 5 to 6 p.m. at the United Way mobile food pantry at Norwich Free Academy to coincide with the day's theme of potatoes and potato recipes.

The mobile food pantry comes to NFA on the third Thursday of the month. Employees of Citizens' Bank, the main sponsor of the "Adventures of Mr. Potato Head," on display at the Connecticut Science Center through Aug. 31, will assist with set-up and distribution of food today.

The United Way mobile food pantry has nine monthly distribution stops throughout New London County and serves an average of 500 people at the NFA stop.

In addition to the regular items of fresh produce, proteins, dairy and healthy snacks, the food pantry will have a potato-oriented theme today and have three varieties of potatoes available, potato recipes, and samples of potato dishes.
