The University of California Master Food Preserver extends UC research based information about 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 Division and passionate volunteers. In exchange for training from the University of California, UC Master Food Preservers offer volunteer services and outreach to the general public. UC Master Food Preservers undergo an extensive training program before educating the community on the safe practices of food preservation, including pickling, drying, freezing, canning, and fruit preserves.
