Local Food Ambassador Program is a program of the NC 10% Campaign at six NC universities: Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, North Carolina Central University, University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Winston-Salem State University. The program facilitates teams of students, University Dining, University Sustainability Office, faculty/staff, Cooperative Extension, and area farmers at each of 6 Minority-Serving Institutions to build more resilient food systems on campus by:

  • Building awareness of local foods through events and social media
  • Encouraging local food collaborations across departments and student groups
  • Increasing access to fresh and healthy foods
  • Offering paid student positions and leadership training for food system jobs
