The purpose of the University of California Cooperate Extension Master Food Preserver program is to provide up-to-date information on food safety and home food preservation. A Master Food Preserver is a volunteer who is formally educated in food preservation/food safety and is certified by the University of California Cooperative Extension. Volunteers are qualified to teach food preservation/food safety in addition to disseminating that information via lectures, talks and other county events.
Volunteer availability varies; please email us to see if we can accommodate your request.
Scheduling speakers requires a minimum of 60 days notice from the date of the presentation.
Master Food Preservers do not charge for their services. Organizations that would like to make a donation, please go to our website home page and click on: UCCE: Make a Gift.
