Master Food Preserver Program to be Phased Out!

Posted by Nancy Kreith -

Unfortunate news came across the desk of Chicago Master Food Preserver Program organizers. The University of Illinois Extension has decided to phase out the Master Food Preserver (MFP) Program by July of 2011. Food preservation programs along with MFP volunteers will no longer be available to the public come July 2011. If you have questions or concerns regarding this decision please contact: Judee Richardson, Extension Specialist, Family Life - Phone: 217-244-1916, Email:

Educators will continue to post resources on this blog. Links and content will remain as a resource to consumers.

Signing off,
