Become a UCCE Master Food Preserver - Training program begins in February 2017

Become a UCCE Master Food Preserver

By Sue Mosbacher, UCCE Master Food Preserver Program Coordinator

Are you interested in becoming a certified UCCE Master Food Preserver volunteer and teaching others how to preserve food at home? Apply for the next volunteer training program in Jackson starting in February. While experience with canning and drying food is a bonus, it isn’t required.

Traditionally our volunteer training programs are taught in weekly half-day classes over a span of two months. This year we’re spreading it out over four months with two classes a month on a Friday and a Saturday. The goal is to make it easier for anyone working to only take one day off a month instead of four or five days. (There are three classes in February to fit in a Food Safety class with a microbiologist from UC Davis.)

Want to learn more? Visit our website at and join us at one of our three training program overview meetings on December 9, January 7 or January 13 in Jackson at the GSA Building, 12200 Airport Road. At these one-hour informational meetings you'll learn about the mission of the UC Master Food Preserver program, the educational events we provide in our community, the training required to become certified, and the annual requirements for active members. RSVP by calling 530-621-5528 or email Robin at
