REDMOND, Ore. -

Concerned about the food and shopping choices people are making that affects their health? 

If you would enjoy sharing research-based information about healthy eating on a budget then you might enjoy becoming an Oregon State University Nutrition Education Volunteer. 

Volunteers demonstrate cooking healthy recipes at local food pantries or lead small groups with fun, interactive nutrition activities.

To become a Nutrition Education Volunteer applicants take a 6 hour class on June 19, 2014, 9 AM to 3 PM at the OSU/Deschutes County Extension office in Redmond.  Once participants are trained and certified, volunteers commit to demonstrating healthy recipes six times over six months.
