Monday, April 20, 2020 (All day) to Friday, April 24, 2020 (All day)

The safety and well-being of our community is of the utmost importance to us. For this reason, this event will not take place as planned. The meat canning committees are currently investigating ways to contribute to the efforts of MCC during these uncertain times. Thank you for your patience and generosity.

Every year MCC’s Mobile Meat Canner travels across the United States and Canada meeting volunteers who prepare cans of turkey, beef, chicken and pork to be sent around the world. Over 30,000 people a year volunteer to fill, weigh, wash and label every can. The finished cans are shipped to our partners, providing important nutrients when meat is hard to purchase.
