Introducing The Shared Plate Series: inKind's Celebration of AAPI History Month

At inKind, sharing a meal is a core part of our values. We believe the table is a gathering place for food, yes, but more importantly for feeding the human spirit with family, friends (and new friends), and co-workers.

The Shared Plate Series reinforces this edict and will include programming, both, in person through roundtable discussions and forums, and online via Instagram Lives with celebrated AAPI chefs. We also invite you to share many plates at your local inKind AAPI restaurants.
