Happy June everyone! We've got lots of news for you this week so let's get to it!
Members Only Opportunity with Maretti Bruschette
We're excited to bring one of our biggest ever Members Only opportunities to you all - the chance to work with a new brand just entering the Canadian market. This is a paid campaign with two different opportunities. Both campaigns emphasize social media and will be highly visual. There is no recipe development required. Be sure to check out all the details (you will need to be logged in to view this opportunity).
Instagram Contest with The National Watermelon Board
Love watermelon? Love Instagram? Then be sure to stop by our Instagram account later today as we launch a fun Instagram #eatmorewatermelon contest with The National Watermelon Board. You'll have the opportunity to win one of two $50 grocery gift cards ** over the course of June. Make sure you're following FBC (@foodbloggersca) and The Watermelon Board (@watermelonboard) so you didn't miss out on the fun!
LOVEONTFOOD Twitter Party
We hope you'll join us on Wednesday evening for a twitter party to celebrate Local Food Week with Food Land Ontario. The festivities get under way at 9pm Eastern Time. We'll be talking all about local Ontario food but everyone is welcome to attend (prizing is only available to Ontario residents). For details on prizes and to RSVP visit here.
