How To Grow Your Exposure, Scale & Thrive with Rhiannon Menn, CEO and Founder, Lasagna Love

Building a movement takes organization, inspiration, intuition, luck, and a lot of hard work. Rhiannon Menn is the founder and CEO of Lasagna Love, a grass-roots not-for-profit organization that engages and supports communities across the United States, and which has launched a viral movement during the Covid-19 pandemic. She joins Corinna & Jules to talk about the power of community, leveraging tools like Facebook groups and Zapier, and the importance of asking for help when you need it.

You’ll hear how her volunteer organization leveraged their volunteers and the talents of students from her alma mater, MIT, to build an algorithm that would enable them scale their business and grow. Rhiannon even shares some news, including how using TikTok has helped Lasagna Love gain exposure and raise funds (with no strings attached) from an unlikely source, Kentucky Fried Chicken. As of the recording of this podcast, 215,000 lasagnas have been baked and delivered to people in need across the United States.
