Here is the 2013 assigned Bremerton Cannery schedule for all of the other LDS
Stakes in the area:
2013 Cannery Schedule
Groups from a stake have first choice of days and times for their assigned
week. Others can
schedule session on the open weeks (they are in yellow on the schedule). Each Stake turns in their schedule 2 weeks
before the session.
If there canning sessions are not full on the days assigned to the stake, then other groups can schedule
people to attend for those days.
Days of the week and times a group can be scheduled at the Bremerton
The Bremerton Cannery is closed Sunday, Monday and Thursday.
If you are going to schedule 2 sessions for your group on the same day we prefer
that you schedule the sessions so they are consecutive (i.e. 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.)
That will help the cannery directors not have to travel back to the cannery again on the same day or
wait there all day for your 2nd session).
Tuesday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Friday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
You will need to turn this form in to the ward or stake Provident Living
Specialist or the person coordinating your group so the forms can be forwarded to the cannery 2 weeks before your scheduled trip.
Do not send the order form directly to the cannery unless you have made an
appointment with the cannery yourself. You do not need to be a member of the LDS Church to use the cannery.
You cannot bring your own food to can but members of the church can borrow
the canner or velum bag sealer, purchase empty containers, then do the
canning of the food at home. Every Friday you can come to the cannery and
buy bulk supplies and empty containers that you can then use to can at home.
The Friday hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (be sure to call before you come
as some Fridays get canceled or the time changed to 6 p.m.).
The contact number at the cannery during those hours on Friday is (360) 373-6028.
Some people prefer to purchase the bulk food, oxygen packs and empty containers
at cannery or other outlets like Winco.
Then they just borrow the canner or sealer and do their own canning
at home. The only items that are taxable are the items in the section of
the order form under BULK PACKAGING MATERIALS.
(NOTE: you have to be a member of the LDS church to borrow the canner or
sealer but anyone can purchase the cannery bulk packaging materials.
