Why Ahimsa?

LET'S TAKE PLASTIC OFF THE TABLE AND PUT HEALTHY FOOD ON THE TABLE

Our focus is to promote food security and healthy eating habits for all children.

In fact, a 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.

Community


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. 

Partnership

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.

You can also donate here directly or find a similar organization in your community to support.

Volunteering at a local food pantry is another way you can help in your hometown. Let's work together to eliminate childhood food insecurity. 

"When I’m a mom, I’m NEVER doing that with my kids!” If I had a dollar for every time I said that to my mom as a kid and did exactly what she did when I became a mother… Mom always made sure I ate and drank from stainless steel plates, flatware, and cups. I thought it was just an Indian thing (and it certainly is). But it’s one of the safest choices you can make for your children.

One of the most important things you can do with your kids is simply eating meals with them. Did you know that something as simple as frequently eating meals together contributes to many physical, emotional and developmental benefits for kids? As a Pediatrician, I designed every element of Ahimsa products and activities to make mealtime fun and engaging because well - mealtime is so important. This type of quality family time is priceless and, of course, like everything at Ahimsa, is backed by science.

What is (and particularly what isn’t) on children’s plates in the United States is prime evidence of the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Right before the current health crisis hit, childhood food insecurity affected a staggering 15 million children. Without the consistency of school meals, as well as many households losing income, that number has grown to about 18 million.
