Do you have any leftover produce you’re not going to use? This includes everything, but particularly fruit items. If you need a good home for these things, give me a call or drop it by the Free Press. I will make sure the Grangeville Elementary Middle School lifeskills class gets the items. Mrs. Steele uses these things in the class to help the kids learn to cook and preserve foods. What a great skill for kids to have. If you have extra pectin, sugar and canning supplies, these items would also be appreciated.
