Social Media Ambassadors Program

The Food Bank’s Social Media Ambassadors Program allows digital enthusiasts, networked individuals, & online influencers to raise awareness of hunger and our mission by incorporating our message into their social media.

Social Media Ambassadors (SMA) are an online community of supporters who mix Food Bank messages into their posts. In turn, your name and profile will be featured below on our SMA Roster. The Social Media Ambassadors are critical to helping us expand community awareness of hunger and our work that nourishes nearly 600,000 children, families, seniors need every day of the year.

  • How does it work?
    The Food Bank sends a monthly newswire email that contains information about our current activities, news stories, and initiatives. Ambassadors can pick and choose what they’d like to share on their personal blogs and social media channels.

  • How often do I mention the Food Bank?
    We ask Ambassadors to follow @FoodBankCENC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn and post about the Food Bank at least once per quarter (at least 4 times per year). A share or retweet would be great. Posting original videos and photos are divine. Engaging your workplace, church, or neighborhood is a dream come true for us!

  • What’s in it for me?
    In addition to the glory of being an Ambassador for the Food Bank, here are some of the fantastic benefits you’ll enjoy:

    • For new members: Welcome Packet that includes literature, personalized Certificate of Membership, and a few branded items
    • Opportunity for guest blog posts on the Food Bank blog
    • Special invitations to Food Bank events
    • Monthly NewsWire email for Ambassadors only
    • Feature on our Social Media Ambassador Roster below
  • How do I qualify?
    Social Media Ambassadors should have at least one online network that is public (not set to private) so that shared Food Bank content can be seen by everyone. Applicants should have already published posts about the Food Bank.  (This webpage about Hunger in our Area has stats you can share). Ambassadors must reside in our 34 county service area and believe in our #NoOneGoesHungry vision. Each application is reviewed on a case by case basis.

  • I have more questions. Who do I talk to?
    You can talk to our Communincations Team! Lindsay Humbert, Digital Strategy Manager, 919-906-4798,
