Master cooks sought

April 19, 2007

Johnson County K-State Research and Extension is accepting applications for the 2007 Class of Extension Master Food Volunteers. The application deadline is May 1. Training begins June 6.

There will be a total of eight training sessions. A $75 fee covers the class notebook, apron, name tag and teaching supplies.

Applications, requirements and a complete list of training dates are available at the Extension office, 11811 S. Sunset Drive in Olathe, (913) 715-700, or online at www.oznet.ksu.edu/johnson.

The K-State Research and Extension Master Food Volunteer program puts to use the expertise of nutritionists, registered dietitians, food scientists and culinary experts to train volunteers in the areas of nutrition, cooking, food safety and preservation.

In 2006, 31 Johnson County EMFVs donated 2,980 hours to the community.

Trainees who complete the Johnson County program requirements become part of a special volunteer team supervised by family and consumer sciences agent Nichole Burnett, and participate in various fun activities of their choosing. All activities are geared toward the single purpose of educating the public and enhancing health and well-being.

For more information about becoming a Master Food Volunteer, call the Johnson County Extension office.
