Small Potatoes could receive Pepsi funding

The Bellingham Business Journal

The Small Potatoes Gleaning Project, a program of the Bellingham Food Bank, could receive a $25,000 grant from Pepsi.

If enough people log into and vote at the Pepsi “Refresh Everything” website , the program could win the grant. If Small Potatoes is one of the top 10 projects in the $25,000-grant category by the end of June, it will receive the money.

The money would be used to buy a van to transport fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms and homes to local organizations like other Whatcom County food banks and the YWCA.
