UC Master Food Preservers
The University of California Master Food Preserver Program extends research-based information about home food safety and preservation to the public. The UC Master Food Preserver Program is a public service and outreach program under the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources administered locally by participating UC Cooperative Extension county offices.
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 16 California counties. Last year 332 active UC Master Food Preservers donated more than 20,505 volunteer hours throughout the state!
