The OSU Extension Service in Oregon City offers food preservation training classes every spring. The program is designed to prepare volunteers to deliver food preservation and safety information to residents in Clackamas County--primarily at farmers' markets in Oregon City, Milwaukie, and Lake Oswego.
Formerly called the Master Food Preserver Program, OSU changed the name and format to Family Food Education Program, which now emphasizes general nutrition and food safety as well as food preservation.
