Meat Canning

Our church participates in Mennonite Central Committee's (MCC) annual Meat Canning Project for hunger relief.  Working in shifts, we and many other volunteers partner with MCC's Mobile Meat Canner for 3 days to help address this important local and global need.


If you would like to financially support this project please send donations to Freeport Mennonite Church designated for "Canning".


MEAT CANNING 2021 Update - Praise God!  Thank you to all our volunteers, prayer warriors and financial contributors!  During December 13-17, 2021 we were able to can 41,400 lbs of chicken which resulted in 27,676 cans of meat.  On average, one can will feed a family of four for one day!  If you do the math, that comes to 110,704 people will be fed!
