The wheel of CFPA has four spokes: 
Access, Education, Support, and Community. 

In our view Education can take many forms, from brief instructions on using a canner to a group canning party.   In cooperation with other like-intended organizations, CFPA brings quality programs and opportunities around the sustainable food home preservation to the greater Pierce County community.

Our schedule is posted here, and updated quarterly. 

Here's what's coming up!
