Use Your Social Media Powers For Good!
Join the Food Bank as a Networked Volunteer!

Social Media Ambassadors ProgramWe're inviting social media professionals, technology enthusiasts & networked individuals to "use their social media powers for good" and join the Food Bank as Social Media Ambassadors!

You can help the Food Bank spread the word about hunger in our community by incorporating our message in your social media activities. Simply select a campaign that you'd like to help promote and “talk” about it!

In turn, your name and profile will be featured on our SMA Partners Page. Any blog posts, tweets, videos and photos will be incorporated into the Food Bank’s social media and promotional materials. (See all 2015 Benefits below!)

The Social Media Ambassadors are critical to helping us expand our awareness of hunger and provide the vital relief that over 650,000 children, families, seniors need every day of the year. Show the world that you're a Hunger Hero! Join the Social Media Ambassadors Program today!

How does it work?
The Food Bank will provide an online resource center and monthly newswire email that contains information about our current activities, campaigns and news. Logos, brochures & important details will be outlined. SMA members can pick and choose what they’d like to help promote using their online communities: blogs, websites, twitter, linkedin or facebook.

How often do I mention the Food Bank?
We hope that our SMA members can pick at least two or three campaigns during the year. A blog post, a few tweets or facebook mentions would be great. Videos and photos are divine - and engaging your workplace, church or neighborhood is a dream come true for us!

How do I qualify?
