Program Overview

The Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program provides citizens with an opportunity to continue the work of N.C. Cooperative Extension by providing unbiased, research-based information on food systems, cooking, and food safety to our community. Under the guidance of Lee County Extension Agents, volunteers will complete a 30-hour training program to become Extension Master Food Volunteers. After program completion, volunteers will complete 30 hours of community service, which includes shadowing the supervising agent. With supervising agent approval, volunteers can provide community programming independently as well as continue to assist and shadow the supervising agent.
