What is The Patachou Foundation?

The idea for the Foundation is simple:  To use our food truck to take healthy after-school snacks to children impacted by homelessness and hunger, and while feeding them, increase their awareness, connection and excitement about the whole food they are eating. The Patachou Foundation will be partially supported with profits produced by Public Greens, a Patachou restaurant soon to be opened on the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple. The Foundation, in keeping with Patachou Inc.’s original vision for itself, will start small, adhere to smart growth strategies, make an early impact; and, in keeping with Patachou’s 2020 vision, be a radically different and radically better organization. Our goal for the foundation is that, over time, additional trucks can be used to help in this endeavor; that additional Public Green restaurants can be established to help feed and fund The Patachou Foundation; and that our community can benefit from these actions in an impactful and transformative manner.




A message from Patachou Inc. founder Martha Hoover

As a mother of three grown children, I remember fondly the crazy after school hours trying to cram in homework with athletics, extracurricular activities, and the day’s recap at the dinner table. I remember how hungry...

all profits from public greens, under construction on the monon trail in broad ripple, will support the Patachou foundation with its profits, the only restaurant in the area to do this.
