On May 3-5th WSPC staff were back at it again and exhibiting at the 2019 Bloomsday Tradeshow and Race! The purpose of this event was to come together as a community to support healthy lifestyles for our youth, families, and athletes. As a sponsor WSPC had the opportunity to share information, recipes, fresh potatoes and athletic gear with more than 30,000 athletes in Spokane. Athletes and families gathered to grab their free produce bag, filled with high-quality Washington spuds! WSPC staff also passed out fanny packs, bandanas, potato chips, light up wristbands and more! Many of the athletes we spoke with were surprised and excited to hear all the health benefits potatoes have to offer. Potatoes are an all natural, nutrient dense vegetable full of fiber, protein, vitamins, and antioxidants. Plus, the significant amount of potassium and carbohydrates in a potato allows for energy boosts and quick muscle recovery! Potatoes contain no fat, cholesterol, sodium, or gluten, making them the perfect superfood for athletes! On race day we were excited to hear about all the participants that enjoyed potatoes from our potato produce bags for their dinners the night before. Potatoes are the perfect pre/post-race snack and can be easily used in many meal prep dishes.
