EMFV Volunteer Application (online application)

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 2018 application for the EMFV program is now open to Moore County citizens! The application deadline is November 30th but sign up early because spots are limited! Training will begin January 24th with a list of all class dates and information listed below!

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. The cost of the program is $25.
