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 opening soon 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 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.
