The Ohio State University Extension Service of Noble and Washington Counties is offering a series of food preservation workshops on safely canning, freezing, and drying foods at home. 
The final class, scheduled for Tuesday, October 15, will explain how to preserve meats, soups and stews. It will be held at the Marietta First Church of the Nazarene located at 100 Millcreek Drive. 

Classes are open to anyone, but space is limited to 15 people. Registration fee is $25. per person.

The book So Easy to Preserve is included in the registration cost. Participants can also bring their pressure canner lids (dial gauges only) to have them tested at no cost. Reserve your spot by October 8. 

Dining with Diabetes helps by teaching people with diabetes to reduce sugar, salt, and fat in foods without giving up good taste. This free series will take place on October 14, 21, & 28, 6:00-8:00pm, at the OSU Extension office located at 202 Davis Avenue, Marietta.

A free 6-part series on Food & Kitchen Safety will held at Washington County Library branches: Oct. 7 in Belpre; Oct. 16 in New Matamoras; Oct. 21 in Marietta; and Oct. 23 in Beverly. Presenters will concentrate on the "temperature danger zone" and the seriousness of food-borne disease. All classes start at 1:30 p.m. with no pre-registration required and are funded by the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Everyone is welcome to attend.
