ComNetworkNY: Using Strategic Communications to Feed the Soul of NY, A Special BYOB Discussion

ComNetLOCAL Event

New York City may very well be the food capital of the world, connecting us to an unparalleled diversity of cuisine and culture. And while Covid-19 has hit the restaurant industry hard, if there’s one thing we know about NYC, it’s that we’re resilient. Enter Restaurant Workers Community Foundation, an advocacy and grantmaking nonprofit that provides critical support in NYC and nationwide.

RWCF’s origin is a true NY success story. Starting with a shoestring budget and growing to over $8 Million in funds in less than one year, the foundation’s communications and leadership met the dual challenges of telling the story of pandemic’s impact and providing urgent industry support in a rapidly changing environment.

Join Michael Remaley and Kiki Louya Wood for a special BYOB as they share RWCF’s story and impact, the role communications has played in helping the organization adapt and thrive, and what’s next in the years ahead.


BYOB (Bring Your Own Bagels) Breakfast with ComNetworkNY is a monthly Zoom gathering structured to enable attendees to connect with peers, build networks, and think together about some of the unique communications issues we are dealing within New York.

You can help us get ready for the gatherings by using our new Slack channel to share topics you would like to discuss. Your input on Slack will make our conversations more valuable and engaging. If you are not a member of the ComNetworkNY Slack channel yet, please join us there:
