Event: Master Food Volunteer Online Program
Welcome to the K-State Extension Master Food Volunteer online training! We are glad you have chosen to be a volunteer for K-State Research and Extension.
The Extension Master Food Volunteer Program training provides a basic common core of knowledge to complement the food-related expertise volunteers already possess. It is expected that volunteers will continue to expand their research-based food knowledge to help reach current and untapped audiences with information on enjoying food in delicious, safe, and healthy ways.
The idea of creating a Master Food Volunteer Program (MFVP) resulted from the need to expand the food science and human nutrition programs in local communities. The MFVP focuses on the subjects of nutrition food safety, food science, food preparation, and home food preservation.
The MFVP will help reach current and untapped audiences to provide consumers with up-to-date knowledge so they can enjoy food in many new ways. MFVP participants can gain a sense of community spirit, accomplishment, and intellectual stimulation.
The Master Food Volunteer Program was developed and is maintained under the Family and Consumer Science program area's direction. Local Family and Consumer Science Agents manage the volunteers they train.
