Mashed Potatoes.org is a grass roots community project founded by Fremont artist and
entrepreneur, Matt Jones. The project is designed to deliver large quantities of potatoes and easy-to-store food items to
regional and international food banks and various humanitarian
organizations around the world.
Why the name “Mashed Potatoes”? because Jones believes that mashed potatoes are the king of comfort food or as he puts it, “the top of the food chain of cool”.
MashedPotatoes.org is experiencing explosive growth and to-date has delivered
nearly a million pounds of potatoes to Northwest

The community projects created by Mashed Potatoes are quickly gaining recognition through
their quarterly "Passion for Mashin" first Friday events at Gasworks
Gallery in the big blue JONES
building (across from Ivar's on Lake
Union) on 4th and Northlake Way. We look forward to seeing you at one
of our next events!
