Community Cans Food to Help Feed Needy in Iredell County, 1933

From the August 11, 1933, issue of The Landmark, Statesville, N.C.

All relief canning projects in Iredell County, except the canning of produce from community gardens, are suspended this week to permit canning leaders to make a survey of canning done in their respective townships.

During the week each canning leader is asked to pay visits to the home of needy families for whom relief canning has been done this summer, check over the stock of canned food—in tin and glass—on the shelves, and make report to the welfare department. This survey is being made in order that information may be available as to distribution of the canned food among individual families, need for further canning, etc.
