Hosted by WSU Skagit and San Juan : Food Preservation Series. Take advantage of summer produce to increase food access!

Learn how to preserve food! This 4 part series will help you increase your food access using safe, tested protocols. With the recent COVID outbreak, we have found an increased interest in food preservation as we experience food shortages at grocery stores and put more emphasis on self-sustainability in our food system.

No equipment necessary. WSU Food Safety/Preservation instructor will teach techniques and explain the items needed to preserve foods in your home. This series covers all information needed to take advantage of our amazing local produce and reduce waste in your kitchen. This class will be taught online using Zoom.

Participants will receive a variety of links for free downloadable recipes, guidelines, and articles through a link to a comprehensive Google Drive.
