Students Against Hunger represent
the Mid-South Food Bank at speaking engagements, tours of the Food Bank, and
other events in the community. These volunteers act as Mid-South Food Bank’s
ambassadors to help increase the Food Bank’s visibility and recruit support
from volunteers and donors in the communities we serve. We provide the
information; our Students Against Hunger provide the passion to tell our story
to social and professional groups, among others. This volunteer position is
best suited for students with flexible schedules and a knack for public
speaking and who want to serve the community. Special training is required to
become a Student Against Hunger.
As part of its mission to fight hunger through education and
advocacy, the Mid-South Food Bank is expanding its Students Against
Hunger Ambassadors program. We are currently searching for students
in the Mid-South who are interested in public speaking, community involvement,
and leadership, which Scouts already possess.
Did you know that the Mid-South Food Bank serves 31 counties out of the Girl Scouts Heart of the South's 59 county jurisdiction?
The Food Bank currently serves over 30 counties in Northwest
Mississippi, East Arkansas, and West Tennessee.
As ambassadors, students would raise awareness and recruit support from
volunteers and donors in and for their communities. This volunteer
position is best suited for students with flexible (weekend) schedules and who
have transportation. Each ambassador will receive training prior to their
his/her speaking engagement and recognition for his/her service.
The Mission of Mid-South Food Bank is to fight hunger through
the efficient collection and distribution of wholesome food, and through
education and advocacy.
Mid-South Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and the Safety Net Collaborative.
