Default Wrong Phone Number

Actually, the phone number (on the original post) to the LDS Cannery is 816-453-2398. The number listed is the Bishop's storehouse which is right next door.

The attached document shows the items that are available but note the the only items you can buy "off the shelf" are the items in the lower left hand corner. The other items you have to schedule a time to go in and you can them yourself.

The Bishop's storehouse is part of the LDS church's welfare system that allows members to partake of food if they are in need. You have to have an order form filled out and signed by the bishop in order to get the food. Which is at no cost.

The pancake batter comes in bags and you have to add your own eggs and oil (which you can substitute powdered eggs and powdered shortening w/water) . The Potato pearls also come in bags. I believe there are 12 bags to a case.

Also, the cannery doesn't charge sales tax, either. I hope this has been helpful!

Could someone explain how a cannery works? I looked at the order form but there isn't a good description of how this works. I see there is a "packaged by customer" choice. Does that mean I can go in there and package up the food i purchase? Do you have to know how to can food to do this? It also seems that this might be for people in need. What if you think it looks like a good deal but you're not really strapped for cash?

Not necessarily...Each cannery has their own set of rules. Call the one closest to you and ask. I would guess that most of them would allow you in. Most of the time they have groups that are scheduled to be in there and would probably let you join them.

I stopped by the Kansas City Cannery a couple weeks ago and they did NOT ask me if I was a member of the church. Basically how it works, is if you look at the order form (click here), the items in the very bottom left corner is what you can buy directly from them without having to set an appointment and can yourself. The rest of the items you have to arrange a time because you are going to be digging into bins and literally canning the stuff yourself. You show up, you wear an apron, net hat & gloves and you are in a sterilized room to minimize bacteria/germs. Plan on around 3 hours, depending on what you are doing.

There is a welfare grocery store next door called the "Bishop's Storehouse" and you do have to have special permission/be a member to use items from there. But the cannery is open to anybody.

When I stopped by, i didn't have an appointment. I ended up buying a case of rice, oats, wheat, potato pearls (yum) and pancake mix (the best i've ever tried). Plus, I bought a bag of oxygen packets because I cook with a lot of freeze dried items (tomato powder, eggs, milk, butter, shortening, etc.) so I just throw a couple in my cans and I feel good knowing i've extended the shelf life of my already opened items.

The prices are extremely low and best part of all, they don't charge sales tax. I hope that helps!

This is cool. I'm in KC about once or twice a month on business. Will have to inquire about a tour at the very least.

I've also been able to buy leftovers from other people's canning. Say you want apples. The container makes 15 cans. I usually buy 6 and leave the other 9 cans... except they never are on the shelf when I leave. Someone else grabs them because they are kind of a pain to can.

I've bought onions and refried beans that way.

The cannery is for people to stock up, your financial situation has no bearing.

You have several choices:
Buy pre canned - only some items.
Buy the full box or bag and take it away whole - some do this to store in pails.
Can/Mylar a full bag/box of food. You don't have to buy the whole thing, but you do have to can/mylar it all. Extra cans are put on a shelf. Leftover food, not enough for a can is put in bins with lids/labels for next time.

I've ended up joining groups that were already there. It's a lot easier to can all the milk/oatmeal/sugar at one time for a group. You do one clean up instead of several. It also means that you aren't pushing for space/equipment.

The last time I was there, we actually were first and several people joined us. The people managing the operation didn't hang around much, because they basically said, you know what you are doing come and get us if you have any questions.

Every single time I've gone, there are people who are touring. I gather I was unusual. The first time I walked in I canned. There was lots of preparedness and food talk and no religion talk.

The last time I was there a man came through asked lots of questions and bought some of the pre-canned stuff. He also took most of what was on the overs shelf. He said he was going to come back when he had more time.

I've posted a video several times recently that I think gives an idea of what happens. It's not were I went, but the men could be clones.

Ive been to the KC cannery several times and have never been asked if I was member. Walk in, hand them the order form, pay your cash, walk out with the goods. I need to get some of their non-prepacked stuff. My daughter (17yo) says she wants to go with me. Should be fun.
