About 13% of people in Deschutes County are at risk of hunger and rely on food pantries to supplement their food purchases. To help them learn to cook and eat healthfully, OSU Extension Service sponsors a volunteer program in nutrition education. Participants share their passion for healthy lifestyles and for helping others as they volunteer to demonstrate six recipes in six months after completing training. To become an OSU Nutrition Education Volunteer, applicants take a five-hour class. Once participants are trained and certified, they commit to volunteer to lead six recipe demonstrations at local food pantries.
