MCC Meat Canner
The MCC Meat Canner is coming to town April 12-13, 2018!
Volunteers throughout the United States and Canada gather at the mobile meat canner's stops to fill, wash, and label every single can. Last year, over 575,000 pounds of canned turkey, beef, chicken, and pork were sent around the world. This meat provides vital nutrition to families in Ethiopia, Ukraine, and beyond.
MCC's meat canner has served communities in need each year since 1946. We're excited to help! Our goal is to prepare 14,000 pounds of turkey during the two days of operation at Maple Ridge Center. Ten percent of the finished product can be distributed through local food pantries and churches. As host, our responsibilities include purchasing the meat and financing the operating costs of the mobile canner while it's at our site.
Here's how you can help:
