Do you have what it takes to be a Hambassador?
Got a great story to tell about your role raising or caring for pigs? Ontario Pork’s new Hambassador program helps connect animal experts with curious consumers at events across Ontario.
Many city – and even rural residents have questions about where their food comes from and want to hear from the people involved in raising animals for food. The Pig Mobile is Ontario Pork’s primary consumer outreach program. It’s a popular live-animal exhibit trailer allowing people to learn more about farming and see pigs up close, without leaving the city.
Ontario Pork Hambassadors greet Pig Mobile visitors with a friendly face and experienced voice representing the best of the province’s hog sector. Without support from producers and industry partners, this important educational program would not be able to continue.
Hambassadors connect the dots for individuals who want to learn about how pork goes from farm to fork. It’s the perfect opportunity to share your pork production story, answer questions and engage your fellow Ontarians about the care, quality and commitment that goes into raising food.
Ontario Pork has created a dedicated Hambassador webpage where individuals can sign up to cover specific shifts at Pig Mobile events, and find all necessary paperwork, additional resources, training and information about available Per Diem payments.
So, what does it take to become a Hambassador? You just need a connection to the pork industry and enthusiasm for sharing your story. Visit ontariopork.on.ca/hambassadors, select the event you want to help at and pick your shift. Even better…why not pick a couple of shifts?!
