Henry P. Kendall Foundation | A healthy food system feeds all of us

On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, it seems fitting to thank the Henry P. Kendall Foundation, which has spent the past 50 years working to save the planet. Created by Henry W. Kendall '50 and John P. Kendall '51 in honor of their father (a member of the Amherst class of 1899), the Kendall Foundation supported land, water, and wildlife conservation starting in the early 1970s. In the 1980s, it expanded its focus to include nuclear non-proliferation and arms-control activities. In 1999, the Foundation initiated a program that would eventually work to reduce greenhouse gases and develop early steps for adapting to the impacts of global warming on the landscape. In 2011, the Foundation launched a new program focused on creating a sustainable and resilient food system in New England. Its goal: to find better and more sustainable ways to produce, distribute, and consume food in support of human health and the health of the environment. At this moment, the Kendall Foundation is directing its resources to minimize the negative impacts that COVID-19 is having on the regional food system. We are grateful for its efforts.
