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. We are proud 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.

The 2015 Speaker's Forum featuring Veronika Scott, Founder and President of The Empowerment Plan, was a huge success for The Patachou Foundation. We were all inspired to hear Veronika's candid and moving tale of the creation of The Empowerment Plan, an organization she has built from the ground up, centered on a single idea: to design a coat specifically for the homeless. We are already in the planning stages for our 2016 Speaker's Forum — check back to receive more information!
