Simplot holds frozen goods stockup sale, with money going to St. Luke’s

Future of Downtown
COVID-19 Idaho

Update: A few hours after BoiseDev ran this story — Simplot sold out. The company says it may run this fundraiser again in the future.

The JR Simplot Company will hold a ‘Neighborhood Food Raiser’ later this week to help raise funds for St. Luke’s.

A bit like those bake sales you enjoyed in grade school, Simplot will offer food goods for a good cause. Many of the products typically aren’t available direct to the public and are instead sold to restaurants.

Here’s how it works. Go to the special Simplot online store and pick out a number of the company’s frozen products. Pay online, then head to one of two pickup locations on Friday from 3pm to 7pm – where your purchased items will be loaded into your vehicle.

You can choose from eight different types of frozen potatoes: baby bakers, sliced, tots, shoestring fries, curly fries, ‘Thunder Crunch’ or crinkle-cut fries. Broccoli, flame-roasted apples, mashed potatoes, guacamole, and corn are also available.

Once you order, head to the Simplot locations in Caldwell or Buhl to pick up your goods on Friday, April 17th.

The proceeds will go to the St. Luke’s Health System COVID Response Fund.
