Jordyn's shared the inspiring story of Drive Change's impact on a system that is harms youth. Drive Change's revolutionary model to use food and industry as a living classroom is transforming young adults by empowering them with life skills to keep them fully employed. Like Drive Change, The Patachou Foundation's connection with kids through food and education, is built to change the reality of hunger in Indianapolis.

Without this fundraiser and people like you investing generously in The Patachou Foundation, we could not continue to serve a wholesome meal to kids fighting food insecurity, nor could we continue to bring our hands-on lessons to them teaching about making healthy choices and the joys of the table.

​Watch Bridgett McDaniels-Russell, one of The Patachou Foundation's educators, tell the story behind what she does with the students we serve.

all profits from public greens urban cafeteria and microfarm, now open on the monon trail in broad ripple, will support the foundation with its profits, the only restaurant in the area to do this.



Thank you for joining us for a successful evening with The Patachou Foundation and Drive Change NYC.

What is The Patachou Foundation?

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, a non profit organization in Indianapolis, is partially supported with profits produced by Public Greens,
a Patachou restaurant and microfarm now open on the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple. Public Greens proudly to employ an in-house farmer in partnership with Growing Places Indy.

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 Greens 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.
