Master Food Preserver Program
The training consists of a 12-week session led by UC-certified Master Food Preservers.
Once trained, MFPs will pass on the knowledge onto the general public and commit to completing 30 volunteer hours and 15 continuing education hours every year.
Due to the popularity of the Master Food Preserver Program statewide, materials are being developed to ensure consistency of the program throughout California. As such, we have decided to delay our certification course to Fall 2014 in order to align our program with any new guidelines that are being developed. Details will be posted as they become available. Please check back frequently.
Are you interested in taking a one-time class to learn the basics of home food preservation? If so, our Master Food Preserver volunteers offer classes on a variety of topics for the general public. To find out more about our food preservation classes, visit our Google calendar, like us on Facebook or follow our blog. The cost and location of classes will vary.
