New Master Food Volunteers teach safe food preservation

Master Food Volunteers

The Food Channel named food preservation the top food trend for 2011. However, Northwest Iowa’s new Master Food Volunteers aren’t concerned so much with trends as with helping people learn how to preserve food safely. Whether driven by economics, food recalls or simply the desire to “do it themselves,” 20 new Iowa State University Extension volunteers are trained, certified and ready to share their knowledge about safe and efficient methods of home food preservation in ISU Extension’s Region 6, covering Cherokee, Buena Vista, Pocahontas, Calhoun, Sac and Ida counties.
