We are sure by now that you know all about Eatwith and our culinary mission, but for those of you that don’t, we’ll remind you with a quick recap.
Eatwith is one of the world’s largest communities of food experiences, with the ultimate goal of getting the world to eat better together. To do this, we connect travelers and local hosts from all around the world in unique and authentic social eating experiences, be that a family dinner, a casual brunch, a hands-on cooking class or immersive food tour. Our mantra that we live by ourselves is “Eat Well, Travel Often” and we plan to help the world do the same.
So, how has Eatwith being doing so far? Pretty amazing if we do say so ourselves! Since Eatwith was founded in 2014, it has since grown to 150,000 members in over 130 countries with a multilingual website and app which was voted one of the top 3 apps in 2016!
So, what are we looking for? More people to help us make our culinary dream a reality!
We couldn’t do what we do without our amazing hosts and our passionate team of hungry and hardworking individuals, therefore we need others to pitch in with our passion to help us accomplish our ambitious goals.

The Eatwith City Ambassador
We are seeking people to fill our City Ambassador roles in each major city. The ideal worker would be a local freelancer who has a really strong knowledge of the local culinary and lifestyle scene, and who can find, refer and train people in their city to become Eatwith hosts! To exceed in the role, they would need to really understand the Eatwith business, be creative in searching for potential hosts and have a great personality in order to connect with people from all over the world and from many different backgrounds. Sound like you?
What We Need from Our City Ambassadors
With this exciting yet challenging role, our awesome City Ambassadors have to have certain skills and personality traits to help them do what they do so well. Therefore, if you want to be the foodie guru of your city, you’d need to be:
- Positive and optimistic
- And just generally awesome!
If you’re ticking all the boxes so far and you are passionate about this role, great! We’ve been looking for you! However, you may want to hear from a current City Ambassador before reading how to become one yourself, just to get a proper overall impression of what the role involves.
Advice from an Eatwith City Ambassador
Do you have any advice for someone who is interested in this role? What would you have found useful to know before you signed up to be a City Ambassador?
The role of City Ambassador is exciting and pleasing yet quite challenging! If I could turn back time, I would love someone to advise me (maybe they did but I was so impatient to start that I ignored the challenges!) that convincing people to participate in the Eatwith community is not a piece of cake.
I have approached several people from Athens who are excited about Eatwith and really interested in learning more about it. However, pretty often, life happens and obstacles pop up, such as lack of time or space, hesitations or reservations…
Why do you love to be your city’s ambassador and what are the advantages?
Despite the challenges of this role, I really enjoy what I am doing because I communicate with several different people who have the same passion about food sharing and they are in general open to new people and authentic experiences!
Moreover, I feel like I am contributing to the establishment of the sharing economy in my city, which I consider as a great step for our social and financial progress. Last but not least, I am really happy that I am co-creating a unique community of people, cooks, and hosts, who are willing to set the table and share stories about themselves and their city! I think it’s a magical and powerful way of bringing people together and allowing them to share their cultures.
