Inyo-Mono Master Food Preserver Program

UCCE Master Food Preservers of Inyo and Mono Counties

The University of California Cooperative Extension provides information and training on food safety and preservation through its Master Food Preserver program. Master Food Preservers are volunteers trained by the University of California in approved food preservation methods and food safety standards. Volunteers are certified to answer questions, present demonstrations and workshops, and develop educational materials, publications, and web resources on all aspects of home food preservation, including canning, freezing, drying, pickling, and preparing jams and jellies. 

The Master Food Preserver Program is expanding in the State of California. While only three counties had active Master Food Preserver (MFP) programs in 2010, 13 counties offered MFP training by the end of 2012, and interest in the program continues to grow. The Inyo-Mono Master Food Preserver program was established in 2014, with its inaugural class graduating in May. We aim to hold instructor trainings every two years. To find out more, please see Become A Master Food Preserver.
