It is that time of year again where it will be very difficult to reschedule any missed appointments. Usda staff will be attending our Western Region conference the week of April 24th through the 27th. We will do Siletz distribution the first week of the month, receive food shipments the second week, then Salem distribution the third week and then conference time the last week. During that time, we will not be able to do our regular deliveries, so please try to find someone to either bring you in or at least pick up for you.

1. Place butter, bacon, onion & celery in a large pot on medium heat. Cook until onion is soft and bacon is getting brown. Add a little kosher salt and pepper to this to draw the moisture out of the veggies.
2. Add the flour to make rue. Cook for about 5 minutes to cook the flour, stir occasionally.
3. Add the corn, potatoes and chicken along with the evaporated milk and the 1% milk.
4. Add more salt and pepper and taste.
5. Let this simmer for about ½ hour to heat through.
This makes a pretty big pot of soup. Cut it in half or to suit your needs. Very quick and easy soup that is so delicious.
