HOF's Potato Blitz

Over twenty years ago, House of Friendship (HOF) Board Members decided to host a potato blitz in February to help meet the need for potatoes throughout the year in emergency food hampers and program meals. Today, the campaign raises potatoes and donations equivalent to 300,000 pounds of potatoes. Potatoes are used for hampers and meals, and donations are used to buy more potatoes.

  • Don Cameron Potato Night – Friday, Jan. 26, 2018

  • Supermarket Blitz – Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018

Thank you to the many volunteers, partners and sponsors who make the February Potato Blitz possible and who come together to share the gift of food with our neighbours in need.

In 2017, the equivalent (cash and spuds) of 319,000 pounds of potatoes were donated. THANK YOU for feeding our neighbours in need.
