Here is one for your calendars!

NC Cooperative Extension, through our Family & Consumer Science Agent Morgan McKnight, seek to provide educational programs in food safety, nutrition, food preservation, and local foods as related to health, wellness and chronic disease reduction. Morgan will be offering the Extension Master Food Volunteer (EMFV) program January-March 2018 and applications will be available next week. The program is similar to our Master Gardening certification but is designed to engage you in food and nutrition programming in your community.
