From the canning secretary of the Central PA World Hunger Association, Rick Esh: We are canning 30,000 pounds of turkey this year (over 16,000 cans) of meat. To date, our all-volunteer team (including people like you) has canned around 666,927 cans of meat. After canning, the majority of our meat goes to the Mennonite Central Committee’s warehouse for shipment to relief efforts. The CPWHA keeps 10% of the cans in the central Pennsylvania area for our local neighbors. These cans are distributed in March to area agencies, including the Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, soup kitchens, and others throughout the counties of Mifflin, Juniata, Centre, Huntingdon, and Blair.
