Join the MEHKO Movement!
Connecting Diners to Home Chefs!
What is INTERNET FOOD SERVICE INTERMEDIARY?
Internet food service intermediary (IFSI) is a LISCENCED entity that facilitates the sale of home cooked meals offered by microenterprise home kitchen operations (MEHKO) through a web and or mobile platform. The California Homemade Food Act (AB-626), makes it possible to run a cooking business right from the comfort of your kitchen. Our mission is to help you find a MEHKO in your area or to get started and apply for your own MEHKO permit and take part in the explosive growth of MEHKOs.
Get started with the application process and list your home restaurant and start getting paid!
