Our vision for our logo is a patra bowl (typically made of metal), that is made of the hands children of multiple races.
The other though is a bowl being held by children of many races.
The Patra project is a non profit that is dedicated to provide one meal to a child in need for every meal our sister company Nybll sells to our clients.
The Patra Project
Buy a meal. Give a meal.
You think your team will jump for joy when they eat our food? Imagine the look on a kindergarteners faces we feed every day with your support!
Now the meals you feed your team not only impact your bottom line, increase productivity and improve the health and well-being of your team, they also impact the lives of at-risk kids and families in your community.
With our buy a meal give a meal program, Nybll is committed to ending the imbalance and inequity in healthy food access. In the US, 1 in 4 children go to school hungry with limited access to healthy food. Because they live in what are considered “urban food deserts,” parents are forced to buy processed foods in bodegas, corner convenience stores, food banks, pantries, and fast food restaurants.
In oakland alone there are over 600,000 children that fall below the poverty level and rely on social services to eat 1-2- and sometimes 3 meals per day. That means these children are forced to eat food bank and food pantry “leftovers,” which are often canned, highly processed food.
We are on a mission to change that by giving children what they need--what they deserve—nutritious, fresh food everyday.
Every time you order Nybll meals for your team you ensure a child doesn’t go to sleep on an empty stomach. Every meal you feed your team, feeds a child in need.
Make your corporate catering mean something.
48.8 million Americans—including 16.2 million children— live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year.
Food insecurity—the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food— exists in 17.2 million households in America, 3.9 million of them with children.
Rates of food insecurity are substantially higher than the national average among households with incomes near or below the federal poverty line, among households with children headed by single parents (35.1% of female-headed households with children are food-insecure) and among Black and Hispanic households.
Food insecurity is most common in large cities but still exists in rural areas, suburbs and other outlying areas around large cities
− 25 % of households with children living in large cities are food-insecure.
The typical (median) food-secure household spent 27 percent more for food than the typical food-insecure household of the same size and composition.
59% of food-insecure households reported that in the previous month they had participated in one or more of the three largest federal food and nutrition assistance programs: SNAP (formerly food stamps), School Lunch and WIC.
