Community Food Provision, Preparation, Preservation and Packing
This is a required course for the Provider certification path.
This course begins with a 4-hour online portion (recorded webinars and downloadable handouts) that covers water, food & meal planning for teams and communities, food safety, meal preparation and an introduction to various methods of food preservation at home or in the field. The online segments are made available several weeks prior to the 3-day on-site course.
During the online portion, students learn how to plan meals and ensure a potable water supply for a group. Students also learn essential food safety and calorie planning, and then put it all together with packing & preservation methods for both urban and remote environments.
The on-site, 3-day hands-on course teaches students several proven options for preserving, cooking and storing food. Students learn time-proven methods for alternative refrigeration, quick long-term food storage methods, and build a heat retention cooker. They also build a smokehouse from scratch.
Students go home with handouts, a prepared dry canned or dehydrated food item, a heat retention cooker complete with construction instructions and a blueprint for building their own smokehouse.
