As a part of persons with disabilities employment opportunity expansion and independent support, the Sakai City Office in western Japan opened its renewed dining room on February 2.
The city decided to reduce the rent to 1/2 by employing two persons with disabilities as a condition because the previous enterprise had given up the business due to the low profit in November, 2014, and a new enterprise was being solicited.
The new dining room called the "Kitchen in a Forest" employs two persons with disabilities among 14 employees formally, and five people work as a part of starting working practice. A Deaf woman takes charge of coffee, etc.
