I know that the deadline for the Walton Feed order passed long ago. However, we are still looking for about 700lbs worth of an order to be able to place the order. I'm hoping someone (or multiple someones) missed the deadline and would like to still place an order.
Here's how to place your order:
1. Send me an email ASAP (wcfoodstorage at gmail dot com) to let me know you want to place an order.
2. Go to www.waltonfeed.com, scroll to the "Shop" and search the menu heading listed there. Most the food is located under "Rainy Day Foods" or "Organics". Click into the items to add them to the shopping cart. Don't add your zipcode when you place the items in your cart.
3. Go to the shopping cart, and below all the items will be a shipping weight.
4. Multiply the shipping weight by $.19 and then add $5. This will be your shipping cost.
5. Print out a copy of the shopping cart, write in the shipping cost. Also, add your name, address, and phone/email.
6. Write a check to me.
7. Place items 5 & 6 in an envelope and mail to
8. Wait for a phone call or email to confirm arrival of your order.
9. Wait for another phone call or email to let you know the day and time of your pick-up.
10. Somewhere in there -- talk to your friends and neighbors and see if they want to place an order too. We really need more orders. (And I really need more food for me from Walton!)
Update: The order was placed on December 23, 2008.

We have 2 canneries available to us. (They are also known as Home Storage Centers).
IN - Indianapolis
*We do not have any work assignments for either cannery. We are able to go to the cannery to fill our own orders.
*Order forms can be found here: http://www.providentliving.org/content/display/0,11666,8133-1-4352-1,00.html
*All trips to the Indianapolis Cannery need to be scheduled through me. (I can schedule trips for the following days: Monday morning, Tuesday after 1pm, Wednesday - Saturday - session times 9am-1pm, 1pm-4pm)
*Anyone may call the Columbus Cannery and make an appointment to go. The best days to call are Monday and Tuesday during the days.
*We have a canner (for sealing 10# cans) and a mylar pouch sealer that can be checked out. Just send me an email to schedule pickup.
*Mylar pouches and oxygen absorbers are also available for purchase from www.ldscatalog.com.
*May I bring my own items from home to can?
*What are approved products?
Approved products are low-moisture whole grains (not milled or cracked) that do not have an oily seed coat, most dried beans, legumes like dry peas, pasta products that do not contain eggs, dehydrated or freeze-dried fruits and vegetables that are dry enough to snap when bent, TVP (texturized vegetable protein), granulated sugar, processed white flour (not self rising), non-fat dry milk, gelatin, and pudding desserts (that do not contain eggs).
*What are non-approved products?
*Can I pay with my credit card or debit card?
NO. We do not accept either of these. Checks are preferred or cash in the exact purchase amount will be accepted. Please do NOT make out your checks in advance! Items may be out of stock or a price change may have occurred. An order form/price list is used to enter all transactions into the cash register. A cash register receipt with itemized prices will be issued for all payments. No products leave the cannery without payment in full being received.
*What needs oxygen absorber packets and what does not?
*Didn’t we use to do wet pack canning?
*What is the difference between Hard Red and Hard White Wheat?
*White wheat is currently unavailable. It will be available in January.
*Where can I find out more about food storage and preparedness?
