Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Extension Master Food Volunteer program! This page provides information about the program. If you’d like to learn whether the EMFV program is offered in your county, please see the bottom of this page, or contact Hayley Cowell, hayley_cowell@ncsu.edu. Thank you!

What is the Extension Master Food Volunteer Program?

Interest in food, cooking, and local food is at an all-time high. The Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program is designed to engage residents in food and nutrition programming in their community and train volunteers to further expand the reach of N.C. Cooperative Extension. The EMFV program will allow FCS agents to train volunteers to support their food and nutrition programming and promote local food, thereby building their capacity to deliver high quality, evidence-based interventions.

What Types of Activities do Volunteers Support?

Volunteers work closely with their supervising FCS agent to deliver Cooperative Extension nutrition education and cooking programs, such as Steps to Health, Faithful Families, Cook Smart Eat Smart, and Med Instead of Meds. In addition, volunteers assist with community-based programs and outreach, including food preservation classes, lunch n’ learn workshops, cooking demonstrations at community locations (such as farmers’ markets and food pantries), kids cooking camps, and community health fairs.

What Topic Areas will the EMFV Program Cover?
