Public Greens Opens with a Mission
Public Greens Urban Kitchen Greens & Grill is an urban kitchen with a mission. Now open in Broad Ripple at 902 East 64th Street on the Monon Trail, it plans to channel enough of its proceeds to the Patachou Foundation to be able to provide meals throughout December for 240 food-insecure children and 320 children per week for all of 2015.
“One of the things we have always measured ourselves against is our commitment to the community,” says owner Martha Hoover. “The company is so stable that we’re able to do this. It’s a large financial commitment, but one that we think is necessary.”
Menu items offer an emphasis on fresh, wholesome and non-processed foods, which reflects the company’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and buying local.
The name Public Greens is a reference to the location, which is directly on the ultimate public green space in Indiana, the Monon Trail. Public Greens serves high-quality burgers, salads, appetizers and desserts, plus offers a full gourmet juice, smoothie and milkshake bar.
