Curbside Market Ambassadors

We create opportunities for people who live in our communities to inform and shape the direction of our work.

We believe that programs like Curbside Market are better when the people who use them are invested in helping them grow and thrive.


Support Our Programs

Ambassadors connect residents to our mobile market, which serves over 70 locations in Rochester. Ambassadors promote the Curbside Market through relationship building, canvassing, and working community events.

Inform Your Community

Raise awareness about SNAP, WIC, and other incentive programs that support health and nutrition – including those offered at the Curbside Market. 

Build Connections

Collaborate with fellow Ambassadors, neighbors, and local leaders to bring attention to issues impacting the communities we serve together and develop new initiatives.
