I would love to learn more about canning . Do u ever have a class? I wish I had paid attention to my Grandmothers. Also, Where would I begin to gather materials for "prepping" in case u dont have electricity? Thank you Karen Shelby 270-559-8503

Hi, Karen!

Glad you are interested in becoming a little more prepared. Kentucky weather is very unpredictable, so it pays to plan ahead. The McCracken County Extension Office webpage is a good place to start. The Family & Consumer Sciences Agent position may be vacant, so I am forwarding your question about canning classes to the Area Nutrition Agent Nancy Kelley. Like everyone else, most classes offered by the Extension Service are being offered in a virtual format for the time being.

Here are links to some emergency preparedness materials. There are many resources here.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at if you have more questions.
