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

We Support efforts within the community to reduce food waste and distribute fresh, safely preserved foods to people in need.  

Through our Preservin' for the Hungry program, we work with community members to preserve shelf stable applesauce and jams, for distribution through emergency food systems.  Those participating in Preservin' sessions also get to take home some of what they help make.  Preservin' for the Hungry is a great way to give back to the community that is fun and educational.


NOTE: To keep us in compliance with health and safety regulations, all participants must be 16 years of age and older to work in the kitchen.

IMPORTANT: Spaces at our events are limited to allow for necessary planning and preparation of ingredients, equipment, and space.  Should circumstances change and you are unable to attend an event that you have registered for, please contact us ( or cancel your Eventbrite order 36 hours in advance. CFPA reserves the right to not accept reservations from individuals who repeatedly place ticket orders, but fail to attend.

Click the registration links. Pre-Registration is required. Limited spaces available. 

The health, safety and growing strength in our community to sustain itself in crisis was behind the founding of the Center for Food Preservation Arts, and informs our continuing work. As we all continue to monitor the novel coronavirus COVID-19, we want to make you aware of the decisions we have made in support of this commitment.

After close consultation following the press conference from Governor Inslee, we have decided to cancel or delay all activities currently scheduled for the month of March and April. As the situation evolves, we will continue to keep you informed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

We are following the guidelines from the CDC and the Pierce County Health Department as we all stay informed about the current situation. We encourage everyone to follow these guidelines.
