MSMEs accelerating inclusivity in Singapore: Dignity Kitchen

Dignity kitchen is a social enterprise that runs Singapore's first and only community food court. It is operated by people with disabilities and the socially disadvantaged. The business provides educational and employment opportunities in the food services industry to vulnerable people of all walks of life, including those with physical, intellectual and mental disabilities, ex-offenders, at-risk youth, victims of domestic violence, cancer and stroke survivors. Dignity Kitchen offers bespoke cashier training to the hearing- and visually-impaired – the cashier machines have Braille markings and stickers attached to them and provides height-adjustable countertops to create a more enabling work environment for wheelchair- bound ‘hawkerpreneurs’.
