As stewards of food safety information, we know the risks that we are associated with food-borne illnesses. The spread of coronavirus disease, COVID-19, is a new kind of challenge. The health and safety of UC Master Food Preserver volunteers, staff and our extended community is our number one priority. To the best of our knowledge, no volunteer with the UC Master Food Preserver Program has tested positive for the virus.
As of March 18, 2020, all counties with Master Food Preserver programs have been asked to postpone, reschedule or offer online options for events through April 30, 2020. This directive includes all volunteer-led youth or adult programming, meetings or gatherings.
As a result of this directive, we will have to cancel our Sourdough and Cheesemaking workshop that is scheduled for April 14th. At this time, we do not have a date for rescheduling this workshop. If you were registered for this workshop, we will be asking the Business Office at UC Davis to refund your registration fees in full.
When we are back in operations (hopefully soon), we will send out an email letting you know and will be posting information on our website: https://ucanr.edu/sites/MFPOC/.
