We are pleased to announce that Pete Kennedy is now working for the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) as a consultant on policy and legal matters. Pete is a past president and original board member of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF). There is no charge for consultations with him for anyone who is a WAPF member.
Pete will be working on policy at the state level for WAPF, including advising members on state legislation regarding raw milk, cottage foods, food freedom, poultry processing and on-farm/custom slaughter. Pete has worked on successful state legislative efforts in all these areas. He is also available for consultation on any effort to change state administrative regulations and policies. Pete will be responsible for drafting action alerts for members on legislation, policy initiatives and other matters on the state level.
Raw milk laws will be a focus of his work. A long-term goal of WAPF is legal access to raw milk in all 50 states. That day is getting closer, there is currently legal access in 43 states. The seven states to go are: Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
Pete will be consulting with members on legal issues pertaining to the right of consumers to have access to nutrient-dense foods and the rights of farmers and artisans to produce those foods. He will be available to work at the administrative level with members having an issue with regulators in federal, state or local government agencies.
In the past, Pete has worked on numerous matters involving FDA and USDA, state agriculture and health departments and local health departments on nutrient-dense foods. Work he has done at the federal, state and local administrative levels includes protecting farmers against threatened enforcement actions, handling food seizure, embargo and recall cases, and right-to-farm and zoning issues.
He will also be available for consultation with WAPF members on herdshare contracts and buyer’s club agreements; he has worked with hundreds of farmers around the country on herdshare contracts.
