1948: Communities Can!
The art and necessity of canning
Step inside a photograph showing a group of Muncie women gathering to can their fruits and vegetables. This community canning center, built and operated by the Ball Brothers Co., had only recently been opened for public use, and local women could use the state-of-the-art facility to more efficiently preserve produce grown in their own gardens at home. Inside the space, assist women as they prep their produce for canning, learn more about the process, overhear the latest news of the day and hear about stretching resources to feed a family in post-war Indiana.
