Recruiting Volunteers for both the Florida Master Food & Nutrition Program and Florida Master Money Mentors – November 6, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Volunteers are needed for the Florida Master Food and Nutrition Program and the Florida Master Money Mentors.

Florida Master Food and Nutrition Volunteers should have an interest in food and nutrition, food preservation, food safety and food preparation, believe in continuing education, want to be affiliated with the Extension service, want to meet other volunteers, and wish to contribute to their community.

The Florida Master Money Mentor (FMMM) program is a coordinated referral network designed to match mentors trained in increasing financial knowledge and promoting positive financial practices with people needing these skills. Participants in the program receive one-on-one assistance in developing spending plans, organizing financial records, understanding credit, and planning for the future.
