The idea for the Foundation is simple: Feed healthy meals to children suffering from food insecurity, 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 and microfarm soon to be opened on the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple. We are proud to employ an in-house farmer in partnership with Growing Places Indy. www.growingplacesindy.org
The Foundation, in keeping with Patachou Inc.’s original vision, 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, we can feed more children; that additional Public Green restaurants can be established to help fund The Patachou Foundation; and that our community can benefit from these actions in an impactful and transformative manner.
