Get Your Canner Tested!

Your local HHFD agent can test the gauge of your pressure canner to make sure it is operating properly.

The test is free. Call ahead for an appointment to bring in your canner lid.

Your local home economist is Roxie Dinstel. She is pictured at left doing some canning, one of the many things Roxie is an expert at!

The Health, Home, and Family folks can give you insight on a variety of topics including nutrition, safe food handling and preservation, building and energy concerns, financial concerns including debt managment and household budgets, and small business operations. We also run a StrongWomen program. We are here to help with your questions, and we value your feedback.

Please visit our district directory to find contact information for each of our faculty and staff.
