Dignity Kitchen is a Hong Kong restaurant that has a social purpose: The business is almost entirely staffed by people with physical or mental disabilities. The restaurant trains disabled employees to prep and cook food, as well as serve customers. “They are the people who need help. If we can get them a job, they will be out of the poverty cycle,” said Koh Seng Choon, the restaurant’s founder.
