Preserve Today, Relish Tomorrow.

Our Mission:

"To teach research-based practices of safe home food preservation to the residents of Solano and Yolo Counties." 

Community Outreach

We teach safe home food preservation methods in local communities through public classes and workshops, hands-on demonstrations, participation in county fairs, content contributions to websites and blogs, and in print and digital media.

Community Impact

UCCE Master Food Preservers make a difference in the community by sharing our knowledge about preserving fresh and healthy produce. We are determined to prevent botulism in home canning by promoting research-based methods of food handling and preparation.
