Our Featured Impact Campaign


In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores a central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home. And it all starts with what we eat - and don't eat - for breakfast.

EJF Philanthropies is overseeing an impact campaign to spread the book's ideas as far and wide as possible, with a special focus on partnering with chefs, athletes, influencers, educators, clergy and faith communities, policy makers, investors, and students.
