Weston A. Price Chapter

What is the Weston A. Price Foundation?

The Weston A. Price Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non-industrialized people established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through
education, research and activism. The Foundation supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture feeding of livestock, community supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing  therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk through A Campaign for Real Milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants through its SoyAlert! project.

What is the purpose of this WAPF Local Chapter?

This Group has been formed for the purpose of sharing ideas and to exchange information about resources available in the Northwest Cook County Suburbs, Illinois Area. If you would like more information about our local chapter, you can Contact wapfnwchicagosuburbs@gmail.com Chapter Leader. To ask questions and engage in discussions with the group, please join our Face book Page WAPF NW Cook County Chapter.  Feel free to post relevant videos, share links, and upload photos.

The NorthWest Cook County Chapter (NWCC) serves as a venue for resource and information exchange for those interested in improving their health based on the findings from  the extensive research carried out by Weston A. Price. This group should also serve as a platform for building community and increasing awareness about the principles of Dr. Price’s research. In addition we strongly encourage eating local foods in season and do everything we can to support this endeavor.

Please utilize this website to find local foods, real food recipes, answer specific questions, and discover issues related to lifestyle and dietary changes, bringing awareness to political issues connected to eating real foods and for mutual support.  For interacting personally with like-minded members, just join our Face book Page.

When do we meet?

 Meetings will focus on food preparation skills, various nutrition-related discussions as well as information on local resources for food.  We always welcome suggestions for topics.  Any assistance with planning events, marketing and research for the group’s benefit is warmly welcomed.  An overview of upcoming meetings may be viewed here: Chapter Meetings 2012  full details will be posted in the blog.

Thank you for your interest in the Northwest Cook County Suburbs Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation. We welcome anyone with an interest in learning about food preparation, healthy eating, buying local and of course, the findings of Weston A. Price.

We also encourage everyone to join the Weston A. Price Foundation, but it certainly is not necessary in order to attend meetings and gatherings. If you do join, please mention my name, Renee Renz, so that the Foundation knows where to link membership. Our local chapter does not see any of the funds directly but the Chapter that increases membership the most each year gets a prize of the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.
