Calling all foodies! Do you have a passion for cooking, nutrition, and healthy living? Do you like to share your passion? Johnson County K-State Research and Extension is accepting applications for the 2021 Extension Master Food Volunteer training program. The application deadline is September 10. Training is held on Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting September 22 and runs through October 14. The eight training sessions will be held at the Kansas State University Olathe campus at 22201 W Innovation Drive in Olathe, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The fee is $100. Applications, requirements and a list of training dates are available by calling (913) 715-7000, or online at www.johnson.k-state.edu.

The Extension Master Food Volunteer program utilizes the expertise of nutritionists, registered dietitians, food scientists and culinary experts to train volunteers in the areas of nutrition, cooking, food safety and preservation. Trainees who complete the Johnson County program requirements become part of a volunteer team to assist Crystal Futrell, Health and Food Safety Extension Agent, with community outreach. All activities are geared toward the single purpose of educating the public and enhancing community health and well-being. Teaching classes, leading school programs, and demonstrating healthy recipes at food pantries are some of the activities volunteers participate in.
