  2. Canning Shortage of Lids

    Aug. 24, 2020

    Canning Q & A

    Can't find canning lids (flats) anywhere! What can I do?

    First don't be tempted to reuse lids that have already been processed. It is safe to use lids one time only. Lids will last about 5 years so be cautious when obraining lids from friends and family that have been in storage.

  4. USDA Summer Food Service Program

    Jun. 18, 2020

    The USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to fill the gap when children lose access to meals when schools are closed. Most often this occurs during summer vacation. However, during school closures related to the pandemic, meals are also being made available. You have the opportunity to supplement the food you have at home with meals and snacks for your children from local schools and community organizations.
