We Can’t “CANtain” Our Excitement: It’s Canned Food Month!

Welcome to February! This entire month is dedicated to canned foods and at Libby’s® Fruits & Vegetables, we’ve been a trusted leader in bringing wholesome canned products to your family’s kitchen since 1868. We don’t want to brag, but who better to help you partake in this “CANtastic” celebration than us!

Canned Food Month originated back in 1987 as a way to help people understand the nutritional value that canned foods bring to the table. Canned fruits and vegetables are packed with the nutrients our bodies need to be healthy - all packaged in a safe, affordable way.

Today, there are a variety of high-quality, nutritious fruits and vegetables canned fresh from farms and orchards available to you and your family to help prepare a family comfort classic or inspire the next great recipe. The experts on Canned Food Month have a few tips and activities to help you get the most out of this entire month!

  • TIP - They’re space savers in kitchens: Whether or not you have plenty of food storage in your kitchen, organizing pantries or cabinets can be tricky. Luckily, canned food items are easy to stack, organize, and don’t take up too much space.
  • ACTIVITY - Have a canned food cook-off: Think of this as your "Top Chef" moment: How can you turn those canned carrots, peas, or corn into a gourmet meal? Invite friends and family over for a canned food cook-off!

To help you celebrate all the ways you can use canned produce - we wanted to showcase some of our favorite recipes!
