Guess 10% from every member is just not enough to keep building the coffers up when you have to stay with current standardsTacoma Said - If Scott he asks you to go on a hike, ask careful questions like "Is it going to be on a trail?" "What are the chances it will kill me?" etc. Maybe "Will there be sack-biting ants along the way?"

We get a fair amount of food from the cannery for food storage and have worked at them in the past.
Does anyone know what's really going on?
Other than the above link, almost all articles that say canneries are being shut down are gun websites and forums; some say West of the Mississippi and some say east. Other than those (which are a majority) are a few anti-Mormon sites who claim that it has nothing to do with the FDA, but the Church is trying to blame them.
A few actually LDS blogs say either they aren't shutting down or are some are shutting down, but that the Chruch says it has nothing to do with the FDA.
The actual Church websites say nothing.Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.

From LDS Living:
MR says: A published report stated that canneries were closing; the Church clarified that some facilities will simply be limiting packaging of dried goods.
Contrary to a published report, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not closing its food production canneries and is not limiting the variety of goods that are available to church members for consumption and storage.
"Over time, we will be reducing the number of facilities where the packaging of dry goods occurs," LDS spokeswoman Ruth Todd said Monday. Even then, she added, the church's "home storage centers will offer the same or additional commodities in pre-packaged form, at no additional cost."
The statement comes as a result of questions from a number of different media sources following a blog post asserting that "LDS canneries east of the Mississippi will no longer be canning any food at their facilities beginning June 27, 2013."
That, Todd said, is not accurate....

For those interested, the Church did come out with an official statement:
Concern Over Changes to
Home Storage Centers Unnecessary
Salt Lake City — Over the past several weeks, misinformation and unnecessary concern has been circulating on blogs, over social media channels and by email regarding changes in operations at the Church’s home storage centers, which are located in the U.S. and Canada. No home storage centers are being closed, but the Church is making welcomed modifications in its operations at most of these centers that will help to better serve the needs of members of the Church, as well as significantly improve efficiency.
In all but 12 of the Church’s 101 home storage centers in the U.S. and Canada, patrons will no longer self-can products, but they may purchase these same items pre-canned or prepackaged at no additional cost.
The Church currently operates 101 home storage centers in the United States and Canada where food storage items such as beans, dry milk, wheat, rice and sugar may be purchasedThese changes have been considered for some time as the Church has looked at the best way to provide home storage goods to Church members efficiently. Much of the discussion regarding this issue has suggested that this change is due to food safety regulation. While it has been a factor, the concern expressed regarding that issue has been overstated.
While many individuals have enjoyed self-canning at the Church’s home storage centers, the advantages of providing pre-canned or prepackaged goods include:
- It’s more efficient and cost effective for the Church to produce and ship high-quality, pre-canned or prepackaged goods in bulk rather than ship the same goods and empty cans to a location where individuals can them on their own.
- By offering the goods pre-canned or prepackaged, the Church utilizes less warehouse space.
- Pre-canned and prepackaged operations allow for higher quality and safer preparation of home storage food.
- It is much more costly to maintain and upgrade facilities that must meet food production standards (such as in a self-canning operation) than it is to maintain a facility that simply distributes pre-canned and prepackaged food.
- Volunteer personnel time can be used more efficiently.
The following 12 home storage centers will continue to offer self-canning for the time being as the Church continues to monitor the goods and services offered at home storage centers and makes adjustments as needed:
- Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
- Mesa, Arizona
- Boise, Idaho
- Idaho Falls, Idaho
- Carrollton, Texas
- Lindon, Utah
- Logan, Utah
- Ogden, Utah
- Salt Lake City, Utah (Welfare Square)
- Sandy, Utah
- Springville, Utah
- St. George, Utah
The remaining 89 centers will provide pre-canned goods. A list of all home storage centers is available here.Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.
