Social Media Posting Ideas
Create and distribute photos, videos and blogs featuring soups made with fresh Florida ingredients.
Share photos and videos featuring locally sourced produce and meats used in your soup.
Canned and frozen soups can stretch a budget and be delicious and nutritious.
Create soup from leftovers. Post recipe, video, blog.
For diversity, equity, inclusion – you could share soup recipes important to your culture. Enchilada or pho soup anyone?
Basically, have fun with this but keep it educational. If you need suggestions or advice, feel free to contact the Soup Blitz co-leads listed above.
If sharing recipes via UF blogs, videos, etc, please refer to the 20 Food Safety Tips. It is recommended that you try to incorporate food safety tips when possible. Washing hands, clean surfaces,…etc. We should use this as a teachable moment.
For the 2021 #NationalGuacamoleDay Guac Blitz, we had 55 posts from UF colleagues throughout IFAS and did a great job teaching the public about the Florida avocado industry, guacamole recipes and how this fruit fits into a healthful diet. We can do this again for the Soup Blitz on February 4th. If you would like to participate, please send me an email with a simple description of what you will be doing and what social media you plan to use.
