Many communities don’t have the resources required to grow and harvest their own food. To thrive, these communities need access to sustainable farming. Farm from a Box provides residents with the resources to grow their own crops from modified shipping containers, creating a sustainable means of local food production to serve the community. For the past year, KPS Global has worked with Farm from a Box to provide cold storage solutions in these shipping containers to help prevent post-harvest loss.

For the International Rescue Committee New Roots program in West Sacramento, California, KPS Global worked with Farm from a Box to provide a custom-tailored cold storage solution that would fit inside the Farm from a Box unit. This cooler unit was specially designed to fit within specifications and provide the insulation needed to efficiently keep crops cool after harvesting. Farmers can manage the cooling system with an off-grid power solution.

KPS Global and Farm from a Box are working together to make alternative means of farming available to communities that are lacking resources. Farm from a Box harnesses the power of green technology and pairs it with sustainable farming techniques to empower communities.
By including cold storage solutions from KPS Global, these modified shipping containers provide effective and efficient ways for farmers to grow and harvest food.
