Lamb Weston is once again teaming up with participating local restaurants to bring you Free Fries Fryday! The promotion is their kick-off to Water Follies and the running of the 46th annual Lamb Weston Columbia Cup.

For the second year in a row, Lamb Weston will partner with Second Harvest Tri-Cities, a local food bank, for the promotion. Lamb Weston will donate ten cents to Second Harvest Tri-Cities for every order of free fries served July 29. Lamb Weston will also contribute $1 to Second Harvest Tri-Cities for every new fan who joins the Free Fries Fryday Facebook page by July 29.

“Lamb Weston is passionate about giving back to the communities where our employees and customers live, work, and play,” said Lisa Bescherer, senior director of marketing for Lamb Weston. “Free Fries Fryday celebrates bringing together the Tri-Cities community during Water Follies weekend to support hunger relief. The promotion also gives us an opportunity to thank our restaurant customers for their year-round support and to provide great tasting Lamb Weston fries to Tri-Cities fry lovers,” she added.
