The Hot Room is beyond excited to announce we’ve raised $2,311 in our first quarter of 2019 to support The Patachou Foundation. Our dedicated community referred 323 new students through our “Hot Yoga for Hot Meals” program, and our donation classes have collected funds on Saturdays downtown and Wednesdays uptown.
While we are on track to reach our end of year goal of raising $7,000 to provide the meals for one Indianapolis Public School for a year, we felt this donation was important to make now to close the gap on The Patachou Foundations’ Kitchen HQ. Recently, we were able to make a $2,000 donation to help The Patachou Foundation reach their goal of raising $30,000 to build their Kitchen HQ!
The Kitchen HQ will house a commercial-grade kitchen to prepare the more than 1,000 high-quality meals it serves at eight Indianapolis schools each week. The production kitchen will convert into a teaching kitchen for student field trips and hands-on culinary lessons from industry professionals. A public, for-profit coffee shop operated by the foundation will generate a revenue stream to help support the project. The foundation will offer job skills training opportunities to the youth it serves through the coffee shop’s operations.
Join us in the fight against childhood hunger! Remember to practice yoga, share this amazing practice with your friends, and donate to a school right in our backyard. When you refer a new friend to The Hot Room, and this friend takes advantage of our Intro Month, The Hot Room will donate $5 (or the cost of one meal) in your honor to the Patachou Foundation.
