What is the Extension Master Food Volunteer Program?

Madison County Food Safety ClassThe N.C. Cooperative Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program provides citizens with an opportunity to extend the work of Cooperative Extension by providing unbiased, research-based information on food systems, cooking and food safety to our community.

Extension Master Food Volunteers complete 30 hours of required core training. After completing training, volunteers commit 20 hours of service as a part of their local Extension Family and Consumer Sciences program. In addition to assisting the FCS Extension Agent, the program will provide citizens with the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge in:

  • Leadership
  • Community Engagement
  • Local Foods
  • Food Literacy
  • and more!

Citizens completing the program will earn a certificate of completion, the title of Extension Master Food Volunteer, and be among the first participants in a statewide network of food volunteers!
