The EMFV program, similar to the highly recognized Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteer (EMGV) program, is designed to provide volunteers the opportunity to support Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) agents with food-related programming. Volunteers with the EMFV program will receive a core curriculum of 30 hours of training and will then shadow the FCS agent for 30 hours during their first year. 

Volunteers will be able to provide support to the FCS agent’s food-related programming, including assisting with cooking, nutrition education, and food safety classes, and conducting food demonstrations in the community. The cost of the program is $50 (Scholarship provided this year).
