Sixteen million US children live in households without consistent access to adequate food.
Our focus is to promote food security and healthy eating habits for all children. In fact, a new study in the October 2019 Pediatrics, “Food Insecurity, Health and Development in Children Under Age Four Years,” reinforces earlier findings that link food insecurity with fair or poor health and developmental risk among very young children.
Ahimsa is based in Indianapolis, which is ranked worst in the nation for access to fresh foods, so even if resources are available, access to fresh food is not. The Patachou Foundation serves nutrient-dense meals that are made from scratch using local and fresh ingredients. Additionally, The Patachou Foundation teaches students how to make healthier choices through hands-on lessons that accompany these meals. Almost 80% of kids attending the schools that The Patachou Foundation serves live at or below poverty and are faced with daily food insecurity and hunger.Learn More
We are excited to announce our partnership with The Patachou Foundation! 1% of all sales will go to programs dedicated to serving healthy food and teaching healthy habits to children who need it the most.
