MyPlate Ambassadors

MyPlate Ambassadors make up our largest partner category encompassing the most members in the Nutrition Communicators Network. MyPlate Ambassadors include dietitians, educators, community programs, doctors, schools, authors, and college and university students, faculty, and staff.

Benefits of being MyPlate Ambassadors include receiving:
  • Up-to-date information about food and nutrition activities throughout the U.S.;
  • Resources to support activities throughout your community;
  • MyPlate-inspired recipes and menus; and
  • Toolkits to help you communicate consumer messages based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
MyPlate Ambassadors can commit to any level of involvement to promote the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate – from developing an outreach program for their community to posting a link to ChooseMyPlate.gov on their organization’s website to incorporating Federal nutrition content into a communication product.
