196

Having a good time with your family while helping an association, this is what the Patathon is about. The event, organized by the potato company McCain has a clear objective : gleaning the most potatoes left in the field after the harvest and giving them to the food banks. Last year, the first edition of the event attracted 200 people and 1600 kilograms of potatoes had been collected.

To participe to the event, you just need to sign up on www.patathon.org before September 23. The harvest will take place on 1 October 2017 in the fields of the Hauts de France.
