Meat Canning

Each year since 1946, MCC has sent out a mobile meat cannery, which MCC workers and volunteers use to preserve hundreds of thousands of cans of meat for communities in need across the globe.Your gift to meat canning helps provide nutritious food for people in Canada, the U.S. and around the globe.

From October through April each year the MCC Mobile Cannery is managed by a four man canning crew. The crew provides oversight to the canning operation and works alongside local canning committees and volunteers to can turkey, beef or pork. MCC's Mobile Cannery produces some 1 million pounds of canned meat annually.
