Learn more about the
FreshLink Ambassador Model!

The FreshLink Ambassador (FLA) Toolkit is designed to support the implementation of the FreshLink Ambassador model in diverse community settings. The FLA Toolkit includes four components that are designed to be used together: FreshLink Facilitator Manual, FLA Training Curriculum, FLA Workbook, and FLA Employment Handbook. The FLA Toolkit is based on lessons learned from the FreshLink Ambassador model developed and implemented in Cleveland, Ohio from 2014-18. While all documents were modified for generalized use, some topics and sessions remain Cleveland-specific to offer examples that can be adapted to your organization, population, and context. Adapting this toolkit for local use will require additional efforts to incorporate local cultural norms, data, and language (e.g., name of SNAP incentive programs, farmers’ markets, etc.). All of the training components in the FreshLink toolkit are below.
