Penn State recruits for food and wellness volunteer program

March 22, 2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Penn State Extension's certified food and wellness volunteer training program is in its second year. The course offers 40 hours of training, using online training modules for much of the education and ending with a full day of training at Penn State University in State College, tentatively planned for Wednesday, May 29. The cost for the training program and certification is $125. Partial scholarships are available for those with financial need.

Upon completing the program, volunteers must give back 40 hours of service to Penn State Extension Programs in nutrition and wellness. Volunteers will work with the public by making presentations and assisting with Penn State Programs. Individual interests will be considered in service hours.

Franklin County has no extension educator in this field, and the program is reliant on other county or regional educators.

The application deadline is Friday, March 29. Interested people should contact Rayna Cooper at 717-334-6271, ext. 322, or rgc15@psu.edu for the application and brochure. Short interviews will be scheduled for final selection of volunteers.
