St. Paul Cannery

I wanted to pass on information from Brother and Sister Sterner who are the missionaries at the St. Paul Cannery.  There are many changes that you need to be aware of so you are ready when you go out to can.  They are now canning in an assembly line fashion instead of each family canning by themselves.  There are also two portable canners that you can borrow for one week.

Here's a link to their order form. It is on the bottom of the page.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
St Paul Home Storage Center
16572 River Rd NE
St Paul OR 97137
Dry pack cannery is open by appointment only:
Tuesday & Thursday evenings 6:30pm until 9pm
And Saturday morning 9:30am until 12pm
Call: Carole Sterner 503-874-4020 to make an appointment; you can also email me at stpaulorders@gmail.com
Order forms can be found on the www.providentliving.org site under food storage, we have all the products listed and the prices are current.
We encourage families to come; children need to be well supervised. Non-members are always welcome.
Cash, check, credit or debit cards are taken. No minimum purchase required.
For safety reasons no open toed shoes allowed in cannery
To make your canning experience smoother we ask that you email us with your order totals at least a day ahead of your appointment, for instance, 5 cans of white wheat, 3 cans dry milk, etc. You may change your order once you get to the cannery; we just like to have an approximate amount of products to set up for you when you come. Please email order to: stpaulorders@gmail.com or call me at 503-874-4020.
Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you at the cannery!!
