USU co-sponsoring food storage fair

Utah State University Extension, Weber State University and Brigham Young University co-sponsor a food storage fair Saturday, May 1. The event is held at the Weber State University Student Union Building from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A panel discussion on updated food storage information will be given by Brian Nummer, USU Extension food safety specialist; Michelle Lloyd, BYU department of nutrition, dietetics and food sciences; and Joe Thompson, LDS Church dry pack/storehouse specialist. Workshop topics include shelf life, acquiring and managing a food storage program, containers and oxygen, dry milk, wheat bread, cooking with dry pack, cooking with dry beans and a vendor showcase. The fair will also feature authors Peggy Layton and Leslie Probert and Utah Dairy Council home economist Becky Low. “We are anxious to share our collective information on food storage with the public,” said Teresa Hunsaker, USU Extension family and consumer sciences agent, Weber County. “We have a wealth of information for those just starting their food storage programs as well as updated information for those who have been doing it for many years.” Cost of the fair is $5 a person, and an accompanying friend can get in for half price.
