KENNEWICK -- ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston will give away french fries today at restaurants in the Tri-Cities to promote the start of the Tri-City Water Follies and Lamb Weston Columbia Cup Race weekend.
As part of the promotion, Lamb Weston will donate 10 cents to Second Harvest Tri-Cities for every order of free fries served today.
Lamb Weston also is contributing $1 to Second Harvest for every individual who joined the Free Fries Fryday Facebook fan page before today.
Every dollar donated to Second Harvest provides six pounds of food to those in need in the Tri-Cities, according to Lamb Weston.
Food collection bins also will be available at participating Albertson's locations in the Tri-Cities to benefit Second Harvest.
"We're making our second-annual Free Fries Fryday even more meaningful this year by giving back to those in need alongside Second Harvest, one of our key community giving partners," Jeff DeLapp, president of Lamb Weston, said in a statement.
