EJF Philanthropies

Healthier Food Systems


We are supporting efforts to create a healthier food system and find alternatives to meat coming from animals raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs).

Through impact investments, we are building supply chains for higher-welfare kosher meat raised from animals raised outside of CAFOs, and we are supporting the growth of the plant-based protein market.

Through grants, we are working with organizations to improve farmed animal welfare and highlight the link between the health of animals used for food and the health of humans who eat them.

We are also funding a major impact campaign for the EATING ANIMALS film, produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Christopher Quinn.
