Church Cannery

As Latter Day Saints we are encouraged to keep a year supply of food for those moments of need that often arise unexpectedly. This year supply becomes very beneficial when unemployment, illness, company strike or when unexpected bills may arise.

Inside the cannery there is a huge amount of food that can be canned and preserved to last with a shelf life up to 30 years.

By calling the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints you can be informed of why we have canneries and where the nearest cannery is to you. Tours are available by appointment only.

There is a small fee for every item that is canned there.

These are the foods that can be canned at the cannery:

hard red or white wheat

white rice

potato flakes

dehydrated carrots & onions

pinto beans

black beans

white beans

rolled oats

quick oats

fruit punch

white sugar

white flour

refried bean powder

These food items are canned into 10 lb. aluminum cans or 10 lb. aluminum pouches. These products can be ordered as freeze dried also. No matter which way you order or can them they are preserved to last up to 30 years.

Thank you Megan Arnosky for the cannery photos.
