60-day spud diet earns resident Washington Potato Man of the Year award

Sticking to an all-potato diet for 60 days has earned Chris Voigt the Washington State Potato Commission’s Potato Man of the Year honour.

MOSES LAKE, Wash. — Sticking to an all-potato diet for 60 days has earned Chris Voigt the Washington State Potato Commission’s Potato Man of the Year honour.

The Columbia Basin Herald reports the award was presented to the Pasco man last weekend at the National Potato Council’s annual meeting in Las Vegas. The award goes to someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty to represent the potato industry.

Voigt is head of the Washington Potato Commission. He ate nothing but potato dishes for a 60-day stretch last fall to demonstrate they are healthy and not junk food.
