Descripción del programa


Este programa será dirigido en inglés y todos están bienvenidos.

Explore the world of fermentation with the UC Master Food Preservers of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties as they talk you through the steps to making your own sauerkraut and quick kimchi. Learn about the UC Master Food Preserver Program and have your food preservation questions answered by certified UC Master Food Preserver Program volunteers.

The University of California Master Food Preserver Program (UC MFP) is a volunteer-driven community education program established in 1982. We have UC MFPs statewide, and our local program, which serves San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, was established in 2014. Our mission is to inspire Californians to safely preserve food and reduce food waste to increase food security.

UC MFP volunteers are trained in research-based practices for safe food preservation. Using culturally relevant recipes, Californians are learning how to safely preserve food in their own homes. Our intensive training program certifies volunteers as UC Master Food Preserver Program volunteers. These certified UC MFP volunteers then lead sessions that teach people food preservation techniques such as dehydrating, freezing, pickling, fermenting, and canning. Often, we collaborate with other community organizations such as CalFresh Healthy Living educators, libraries, schools, and local food banks and more to ensure these lessons are accessible to the diverse audiences we aim to serve. 

Registration required.

The Sustainably SBPL series is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
