When the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) says that it’s committed to “food, farming and the healing arts,” they mean it. In today’s episode, you’ll hear directly from the office staff members about WAPF’s mission.
The bottom line? WAPF is a non-profit group dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It 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 and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.
The backbone of WAPF is its members. They are the ones that know exactly what’s going on in their own neighborhoods, and counties (and countries), and they are most able to mobilize when action is required to defend food freedom and to help disseminate important food resource information. In particular, there are 600 chapter leaders worldwide who puts hands and feet to the work that is needed to help restore and maintain the health of people all over the world.
In today’s episode, you will get a glimpse of the office work of the WAPF staff, which undergirds what is happening “in the field,” so to speak. You’ll also learn about WAPF’s most current projects (such as their international outreach efforts).
The mission of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) is to restore nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. This is a HUGE job which is why WAPF relies on its numerous volunteers. There are 600 chapter leaders worldwide, and countless members and others who share the same passion for wellness through nutrition. Together, WAPF supports 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. Additional goals include the establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.
