Family Food Educator (FFE) Program

Food Preservation Classes

We are pleased to announce our 2017 summer/fall food preservation and safety classes. This year we will be partnering with Providence Milwaukie Hospital Community Teaching Kitchen. The majority of our classes this year will be held at the Community Teaching Kitchen located at 10202 SE 32nd Ave, Bldg 101 in Milwaukie. We are bringing back our basic preservation series again as well as our specialty preservation classes. Registration for both the basic classes and the specialty classes are now open. For any questions, please contact Katlyn axmaker at or call at 503-655-8634. You can also follow us on Facebook.
