About Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative
Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative is a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting local farmers with faith organizations. The project facilitates faith communities sharing models to produce and access healthy, local food and build a more sustainable food system by providing resources to help committed congregations increase their level of activity. The group encourages relationships between farms and religious congregations including direct marketing through CSA’s and farm stands.

The ISFC facilitates policy activism by connecting congregations to educational resources and specific advocacy opportunities. The ISFC works to broaden the base of the sustainable agriculture movement by building bridges between faith and farming communities. The Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative empowers congregations to develop programs through networking, technical assistance and financial assistance. Through regional conferences and regular roundtable discussions we identified more than 150 congregations interested in advancing food system work. The Collaborative is building the movement of people demanding healthy, sustainable food by facilitating cooperation with and among faith community leaders. The ISFC works to broaden the base of consumers and advocates for sustainable agriculture.
