AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Thousands of pounds of picked potatoes will be on the plates of people in need around the area this fall all thanks to Saturday's annual Texas A&M AgriLife Plant Pathology unit's Potato Harvest. 

About 100 volunteers descended into the fields to help insect the potatoes. The potatoes were donated to the High Plains Food Bank to help area families. 

In years past, this harvest has been a great success, with 100,000 pounds of fresh potatoes harvested and donated to the food bank.
