Master Food Preserver Program
Preserve today, relish tomorrow
The UC Master Food Preserver Program is an example of an effective partnership between the UC Division and passionate volunteers. In exchange for extensive training on home food preservation from the University, UC Master Food Preservers offer volunteer services and outreach to the general public in 17 California counties. Last year 447 UC Master Food Preservers donated more than 18,908 volunteer hours!
To reduce the rate and risk of community spread of COVID-19, the UC Master Food Preserver Program, UC ANR, and UC Cooperative Extension locations are working remotely. UC Master Food Preserver volunteers are still available to support your home food preservation questions by email, telephone or Zoom. Please contact your local program to find out updates and availability.
