The Patachou Foundation approaches issues relating to hunger and food insecurity in a radical way: by combining nutritious meals, hands-on education and wellness activities, we foster excitement about healthy choices and fresh ingredients. To make this happen, we foster a radically better work environment for people who aren’t afraid to tackle big projects and have a passion to make a difference in our community.
The Patachou Foundation uses the unique resources and background of the 10 area Patachou restaurants along with individual supporters and volunteers to make the biggest impact with the available tools.
