Providing important nutrients

Over 30,000 people volunteer with our mobile meat canner each year to fill, weigh, wash and label every can. The finished cans are shipped to our partners, providing important nutrients when meat is hard to purchase.

In refugee camps in Ethiopia, a lack of sufficient food sources leaves many young children malnourished. MCC’s canned turkey and chicken help combat undernutrition for 6,000 children under 2 years of age.
