If you love canning, or want to help people in need in our community, Community Action Services and Food Bank has the perfect volunteer opportunity. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 14, the nonprofit needs volunteers to cook and can applesauce in the commercial kitchen at the Provo Recreation Center.

The canning effort is part of The Food Preservation and Hunger Relief Pilot Study from Utah State University. In its second year, the project takes excess produce from area fruit growers and recruits volunteers to preserve it, using safe commercial recipes. All applesauce then goes to Community Action Services and Food Bank, which gives it to people in need.
