UC Master Food Preserver Program
The UC Master Food Preserver Program is an example of an effective partnership between UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources 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 363 active UC Master Food Preservers donated more than 20,996 volunteer hours! Learn more at http://mfp.ucanr.edu.
UCCE Master Food Preservers of Capitol Corridor
UC Master Food Preservers of Capitol Corridor include UCCE Master Food Preserver programs in Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo counties. In July of 2014, the University of California along with the Boards of Supervisors from Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo counties agreed to merge the UC Cooperative Extension offices from each county into one unit: Capitol Corridor. This merger increases the impact of UCCE in each county with access to a greater number of programs and improves efficiency of services while reducing administrative costs.

UCCE Master Food Preserver Program for Yolo County
We teach research-based practices of safe home food preservation to the residents of California's Yolo County and surrounding areas. UCCE Master Food Preserver certification classes are held periodically. Trainees learn how to can, pickle, ferment, dehydrate, and freeze food safely at home using research-based methods and approved recipes. We will offer fun and affordable classes and teach step-by-step methods for home food preservation. UC Master Food Preservers are University of California certified volunteers who use our training and expertise as agents of UC in community service. You may find us at your local farmer's market, county fair, or conducting classes at the Yolo County UC Cooperative Extension office.
