What is a Home Storage Center?


Some of you may have heard us mention the LDS Home Storage Center. Home Storage Centers, formally known as "canneries," are basically just stores where you can buy quality food storage at reasonable prices. Gone are the days where you have to make an appointment at the cannery to work and package your own food. Now all you have to do is find a Home Storage Center near you and purchase what you need.

Click here for a list of all of the LDS Home Storage Centers. Local home storage centers and their current hours are listed below. It's always a good idea to call the Home Storage Center you want to visit to be sure that their hours haven't changed. If you can't make it to an actual Home Storage Center location, you can always order online!

Some of the Home Storage Centers have a canning machine that can be checked out, so 
that you can take it home and can whatever you want. Lids and #10 cans can be 
purchased at the Home Storage Center. Sometimes you can find great deals on food 
storage that isn't sold at the Home Storage Center, or you might like to can items that 
aren't sold at the Home Storage Center. Borrowing the canner makes it easier to preserve 
food storage and often more cheaply. If you plan to can anything on your own, make 
sure you double check to see which items can be safely preserved in #10 cans, and know 
how long they will last. It's always a good idea to insert an oxygen absorber in cans before 
sealing them. Check out this post on oxygen absorbers for more information. The Home
Storage Center in Ogden, UT, is the closest place to rent a canner near Farmington.

So, how much food storage do you need? This handy food storage guide can help you know 
exactly how much your family will need to store to add up to a year's supply. 

President Spencer W. Kimball said, "We encourage families to have on hand a year's 
supply; and we say it over and over and repeat over and over the scripture of the Lord 
where he says, 'Why call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?'" 
(General Conference, April 1974)

Home Storage Centers are a great place to get started with the basics. We encourage you
to use this valuable resource to begin building your food storage supply so you can be 
obedient to the counsel of the prophets and have peace, knowing that you are prepared 
for whatever may come. Happy shopping!
