Do you enjoy learning new and exciting ways to cook? Are you always sharing recipes with your friends or on social media? North Carolina Cooperative Extension is currently seeking community members to serve as volunteers in the new Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program. This program is designed to provide volunteers with the education and opportunity to support their local community and Extension Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) agents with food-related programming. Volunteers will be able to provide support by assisting with cooking and nutrition education, providing food safety classes, and conducting food demonstrations throughout the community.

Cooperative Extension Offices in Currituck and Camden Counties will be holding a 30-hour training which includes ten classes on topics related to cooking, nutrition, food safety, and food availability. Training will be held at the Currituck and Pasquotank County Extension Offices with the first class beginning September 4 at 9:00 a.m. Individuals who are passionate about food, cooking, and nutrition, as well as those currently participating in Cooperative Extension programs,  are encouraged to join. There is a $30.00 cost to participants which includes training manual, graduation gifts, and name tags. If you are interested in becoming a part of the EMFV, please fill out the online application by August 3. As your application is received a phone or in-person interview will be set up. Selected candidates will be notified by August 17 and at this time payment will be required.

For more information or accommodations for persons with disabilities please contact Olivia Jones at 252-232-2261, email olivia_jones@ncsu.edu no later than ten business days before the event.
