Feed Evansville received a massive donation of potatoes on Thursday.

The organization now has 4,000 lbs. of potatoes stored at a warehouse.

According to Feed Evansville Chair Lisa Vaughan, most of the large totes will be dropped off at food pantries in the area.

But a portion of the supply will be handed out this Saturday.

Those who are struggling to make ends meet can pick up a sack at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Downtown Evansville.

The handout will happen from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the Community Resource Fair.

The potatoes were donated by JMR Farms, Inc out of Knox County.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
