Connecting Diners to Home Chefs!


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.
