On Friday, the "Great Big Idaho Potato Truck" will roll into town and bring the country's largest potato to meet Rhode Island's most iconic potato: Mr. Potato Head.

The 28-foot long, 12-foot wide, and 11.5 foot tall potato will roll into town at 2 p.m. and visit the headquarters of Hasbro Toys in Pawtucket.

Hasbro is just one stop on the potato truck's seven month cross country tour where it will visit 28 states and 72 cities in an effort to raise money and awareness for Meals-On-Wheels.

Meals-On-Wheels is a non-profit organization that delivers meals to homebound seniors.
