Kerry Brodie started her career in nonprofit communications before deciding to pivot to pursue her love of cooking. While in culinary school, she realized she could use the skills she was learning to create a more sustainable, more welcoming environment for refugees newly arrived in the US. She launched Emma’s Torch, a restaurant and culinary job skills training program for refugees and asylum seekers, as a popup in 2017, and opened as a full service restaurant in Brooklyn in the spring of 2018. Join us for a conversation about social entrepreneurship, food, and running a nonprofit restaurant.
