Are you passionate about cooking, nutrition, health, or just simply – food? If you answered yes to any of these, join the Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program now!! The 2019 application for the EMFV program is now open to Rutherford County citizens. The application deadline is August 30, 2019, but sign up early because spots are limited! Training sessions will be held September through November.
The EMFV program, similar to the highly recognized Extension Master Gardener℠ program, is designed to provide volunteer opportunities that support Cooperative Extension’s food-related programming. Volunteers receive a core curriculum of 30 hours of training and shadow the Family & Consumer Sciences agent for 30 hours during their first year.
Volunteers opportunities include assisting with cooking, nutrition education, food safety, exhibits, tours, and special events. The cost of the program is $35.
