There is a shelving unit of pre-canned items that you can choose from. You can bring youth groups or adults groups to the cannery and can food as a service project and add them to this shelf for anyone to purchase from.
The cannery is well-stocked with cans and food.
Choose your food to can--here we are canning powdered milk. Set your metal cans in a plastic bin to contain the mess.
Fill your cans, add a oxygen absorber.
Label and date your cans.
Clean up: wash plastic bin, wipe down surfaces you used, leave plastic bin upside down hanging over the edge so it can dry.
Fill out the price list, making sure to include all foods, cans, lids, oxygen absorbers, plastic lids, etc. Attach your check and give it to your ward specialist or Susan Powell if you are not with your specialist. Do not leave your payment at the cannery.
