TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Members of the Washington National Guard helped hand out about 200,000 pounds of potatoes Thursday that had been donated by farmers who were unable to sell to their regular restaurant customers due to the coronavirus outbreak. Cars lined up near the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington, to receive the bags of potatos as part of a mission to get 1 million pounds of potatoes into the hands of people in need.
