About this event

Event Description: Join us for an evening of conversation and celebration of the immigrants that contribute to New York City’s food culture! Our panel of speakers from immigrant-run food companies will share their stories of why they moved to the United States and what inspired them to open their businesses. They will cover challenges faced, lessons learned, and insights into what the future of the food industry holds. Whether you're a foodie, an entrepreneur, or interested in learning how to get ahead, you will definitely enjoy this event!

Key Take Aways:

  • Awareness of issues facing immigrants today, specifically the food industry
  • Insight into the issues facing the food industry as a whole
  • Understanding of the factors that affect restaurant owners/catering businesses
  • Advice for starting your own business
  • Understanding of why it’s important to support local food

Why It’s Important: In today’s political climate, it is important to remember that this country was founded by immigrants looking for a better life for themselves and their families. Over the years, New York City has become a melting pot of cultures that have created the identity that New Yorkers know and love. A huge part of that identity is food! Today, we must continue to support the local, immigrant-run businesses that contribute to that identity and listen to the stories being told by the food they share as a way to bridge the gap between old communities and new.
