    Is there any established and active local chapter of the Dr. Weston Price Foundation in the Philippines? And how can we contact them? If none, we would like to start one. We have been following the teachings of the foundation for more than a decade already. We would love to share to share it with others as well and contribute to the growth of the movement. Grace and Shalom.
