San Andreas, CA...The University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) invites adults interested in helping others learn about safe home food preservation to apply to train as a Master Food Preserver (MFP) volunteer. UCCE Master Food Preserver volunteers learn research-based information and then share that knowledge with our communities in Amador and Calaveras counties through public classes, community events, and newsletters....





Who Can Apply?
Residents of Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.
Applicants must be available to attend 11 classes on Monday afternoons from 3:30 -7:30 pm, March 24 through June 9, in Jackson and Valley Springs. There is no class on May 26, 2014. Only one class may be missed.
Applicants must be comfortable using a computer and accessing the internet. Quizzes and homework are online; class communication is via email.

How to Apply

The meetings are Monday, February 3, from 4-5 pm at the UCCE office in Jackson, and Monday, February 10, from 5-6 pm at the Calaveras Senior Center in San Andreas. RSVP for either session with Robin Cleveland at 530-621-5528 or rkcleveland@ucanr.edu.

What We’ll Do
Review applicants. Main criteria for acceptance: 1) prior community service, 2) experience teaching, either by giving presentations, writing, or in one-to-one situations, 3) experience/interest in home food preservation.

Teach you how to preserve food successfully using scientifically researched home processes. Topics include Food Safety, Canning Basics, Canning High and Low Acid Foods, Pickling, Jams & Jellies, Freezing, and Dehydrating.
Provide you with plenty of Volunteer and Continuing Education opportunities.

Attend the 11 classes. Only one class may be missed and must be completed outside of normal class time with a mentor.
Mail the completed Live Scan form to Robin Cleveland at the above address by April 11, 2014.

What You’ll Do as a Certified Master Food Preserver
Actively participate in the Master Food Preserver program; answer food preservation questions at the county fair, public classes, and other community outreach events. Help with program activities through internal committees.
Attend monthly MFP meetings in Jackson and Mokelumne Hill as often as possible.
