Yes You Can! An Intro to Canning and Preserving

Come get an introduction to small batch canning with the Center for Food Preservation Arts on Saturday, August 12th at the Kobetich Branch at 10:30 AM and Wheelock Branch at 1:00 PM.

The Center for Food Preservation Arts (CFPA) is a community resource grown from an awareness of the fragile nature of our food supply.

Founder Hal Meng shares, "After the events of Hurricane Katrina, and disasters closer to home like the 530 Mudslide in the Oso area, I became aware that our economy is very fragile particularly around the food system. Our ‘just in time’ delivery system has only about 72 hours’ worth of food available in any store. . . The CFPA will strengthen our community by creating opportunities for people of different abilities, socio-economic statuses, and cultural and racial backgrounds to come together around the shared experience of food preservation."
