Hands up if you want free french fries!

Dairy Queen Canada has announced a partnership with McCain’s in support of Canadian potato farmers by offering customers a free order of regular fries.

Until September 15, everyone who downloads the DQ mobile app and registers for an account will be given the offer and will have seven days to redeem it at participating locations.

The deal is part of McCain’s #FrenchFriesFeedFarmers campaign on Twitter.

With many restaurant doors closed, Canada is experiencing a huge surplus of potatoes that were dedicated to be turned into fries, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The demand for french fries dropped by about 10 to 15 per cent after restaurants closed down across Canada in March.

This left farmers with a large amount of spuds that they couldn’t sell, and roughly 2 million pounds of them had to be put into storage.

So let’s come together and support farmers, and make sure to treat yourself to a Blizzard while you’re at it!
