Food Preservation Hotline Open | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

It can happen to anyone. You buy too many ripe strawberries so you try your hand at canning. Once in the jars you wonder if they are sealed properly, and if they are, how long will they last? Have no fear: the food preservation toll-free hotline is open from Oregon State University Extension Service. "There is a tremendous amount of misinformation on the internet, so it's hard to figure out what is reliable and what is unsafe," said Jeanne Brandt, Master Food Preserver program coordinator. "Our volunteers know we have reliable, research-based information and they can guide people to success."

Food Preservation Hotline
Mon.-Fri. 9am-4pm until Oct. 12
