What is Cool Harvest?

Cool Harvest is a food, faith and climate program by Interfaith Power & Light, a nonprofit organization inspiring a religious response to global warming. It is for congregations interested in responding to climate change through educating their members about climate-friendly food choices and engaging them in activities, such as organic gardening, that can inspire and have a positive impact.

Modern agribusiness — that favors toxic pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, GMO foods (genetically modified), distant farm-to-plate transportation, and the factory farming of animals — exacts a heavy toll on the atmosphere. It is estimated that nearly one-fifth of climate change pollution comes from the food
industry.

We hope this website and the kits provide you with what you need to get started with your own Cool Harvest program! Thank you for your interest!
