Master Food Preservers: MFP offers second volunteer training class

By
From page B10 | February 13, 2013 |

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 university-based scientific information and then share that knowledge with the community in El Dorado County through free public classes, newsletters, Farm Day, farmers markets, Kid’s Expo, the El Dorado County Fair and other events.

Previously the 2013 El Dorado MFP training was scheduled only for Saturdays, beginning March 2. Due to the high interest level, the MFP recently expanded the training to a second class, offered on Tuesdays, beginning March 12. (Tuesday trainees will also attend the Saturday Food Safety class on March 9.) Classes will continue consecutively for 10 weeks, with the graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 11.

The cost of the training is $75; payment is due before classes begin.

Once training is completed, the new volunteers will be certified Master Food Preservers and agents of the UCCE. Their mission will be to teach our local community how to safety preserve food at home.

As agents of the UCCE, MFPs are required volunteer at least 35 hours annually in the community, therefore highest priority for applicants is given to residents of El Dorado County. Residents from neighboring counties who will volunteer in El Dorado County may also apply.

Space is limited.

Complete the online application at ucanr.org/edmfp by Wednesday, Feb. 20. Interviews will be conducted on Saturday, Feb. 23. The main criteria for acceptance is prior community service; experience teaching, either by giving presentations, writing, or in one-to-one situations; and experience with home food preservation.

For more information contact Robin Cleveland at 530-621-5528 or rkcleveland@ucdavis.edu.
