Mei Mei is more than a great restaurant, they are great story-tellers. As long-time food system activists, they’ve integrated their values into their sourcing. Their mission is inspiring:
We’re on a mission to provide not only great food and wonderful service, but also a thoughtfully crafted dining experience that seeks to address the complicated ethics that surround restaurant food and restaurant work. Restaurants can reflect the problems of the world we live in, but they can also be engines for change. We source our ingredients carefully. We invest in and empower our team members. We want to be a good restaurant – in all senses of the word.
This heart-centered approach is why we were so excited to partner with them to impact lives of their employees and team members through our Rethink Restaurants program. As we move into Year 2 of the program with their team, they are documenting their progress and impacts through a blog series on their website. You can read part one here.
