A "Dig In, Do Good" campaign by a West Prince business, in partnership with Sobeys and The Grocery Foundation of Atlantic Canada, is raising funds for Atlantic Canada's children's hospitals.
WP Griffin Inc., a family-owned farming operation based in Elmsdale, has been supplying Sobeys, Foodland and Co-op stores in Atlantic Canada with the 10-pound bags of Dig In Do Good small russet P.E.I. potatoes since December. The campaign, which also includes a website with potato recipes and tips for cooking the Dig In Do Good spuds, runs until late January. For the full story, click here.
