The K-State Research and Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program utilizes the expertise of nutritionists, registered dietitians, food scientists and culinary experts to train volunteers in the areas of nutrition, cooking and food safety, and preservation. Volunteers are supervised by K-State Extension Family and Consumer Sciences agents located in counties throughout Kansas.
EMFVs are passionate about food, promoting good health and giving back to their communities. Trainees who complete the program requirements become part of a special volunteer team, and participate in various activities of their choosing. All activities are geared toward the single purpose of educating the public and enhancing health and well-being.
Volunteers come from all walks of life and are all ages, male and female, new mothers and retirees, rural residents and suburbanites. But they all share a passion for continued learning and a love of nutrition and cooking.
Cooking demonstrations, teaching classes to adults and children, and writing informative articles that help improve people’s lives are just a few of the many fun activities volunteers participate in. If you are interested in learning more about this program, contact your local Extension office.
