Do you enjoy cooking, eating, local food work, or just simply – food? If you answered yes to any of these, join the Extension Master Food Volunteer program now.
The 2023 application for the EMFV program is now open to Chowan, Camden, Currituck, Perquimans, and Pasquotank. The application deadline is January 31, so sign up early because spots are limited.
This year’s training will have some online and some in-person classes, with classes scheduled for February 6, Feb. 13, Feb. 20, Feb. 27 and March 6 with graduation scheduled for March 13.
The EMFV program, similar to the highly recognized Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteer (EMGV) program, is designed to provide volunteers the opportunity to support Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) agents with food-related programming.
Volunteers with the EMFV program will receive a core curriculum of 30 hours of training and will then shadow the FCS agent for 30 hours during their first year.
Volunteers will be able to provide support to the FCS agent’s food-related programming, including assisting with cooking, nutrition education, and food safety classes, and conducting food demonstrations in the community. This training is free.
