'Public Greens' Opens to Fight Hunger in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 6, 2015)– There’s a new restaurant in Indianapolis that’s not keeping any profits.

So, where does the money go? To a good cause. The new eatery is called Public Greens.

The 902 East 64th St. spot on the Monon Trail opened to the public on December 12.

Public Greens’ earnings will benefit The Patachou Foundation, established by Patachou Inc., which owns Public Greens as well as 11 other Indy restaurants including Café Patachou, Petit Chou and Napolese.

Indianapolis businesswoman Martha Hoover created the popular Patachou eateries and started the Patachou Foundation in 2013.

The Patachou Foundation provides healthy meals to children impacted by homelessness and hunger and also educates kids about the food they are eating.

“We are simply taking the profits and instead of taking into company we are putting into the Foundation. Right now, we are feeding between two and three hundred meals a week,” said Martha Hoover.

According to Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, 1 in 6 Hoosiers turn to food pantries and meal service programs to feed themselves and their families.

“The sole mission of the foundation is to feed whole nutrient feed to children who are at risk situation, homeless, living within poverty and without healthy food choices,” explained Hoover.

When you order from the cafeteria-style menu, you’ll help local children fill up their bellies.

Jessica Albaugh thinks it’s a great concept to fight hunger in Indianapolis.

“It is great food for one. It is local, urban. And most of the ingredients are local. And you feel good about it. If that is your only reason coming, that is great,” said patron Jessica Albaugh.

Public Greens is open seven days a week. The menu changes each week.

Meal prices depend on how many items you pick – it’s $6 for one item, $10 for two, adding on will cost you more.
