Thank you for your interest in the Chicago Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (Chicago WAPF)! 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 the Chicago Chapter so that the Foundation knows where to link membership.
What is the Weston A. Price Foundation?
The Weston A. Price Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt charity founded to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston A. 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.
What is the purpose of this WAPF Chicago Local Chapter?
This is the official site for the current Chicago Illinois chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation. This Group has been formed for the purpose of sharing ideas and to exchange information about resources available in the Chicago area. If you would like more information about our local chapter, you can contact our chapter leader through the contact page.
The Chicago Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter 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 also serves 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, discover issues related to lifestyle and dietary changes, bringing awareness to political issues connected to eating real foods and for mutual support.
When do we meet?
We hold monthly meetings on the second Saturday of most months to focus on food preparation skills, various nutrition-related discussions as well as information on local resources for food. We always welcome suggestions for topics. In the warm season we schedule visits to local farms and in the cold season we schedule events such as film showings, lectures and potlucks. The suggested but not required donation of $5-15 is to help cover costs of room rental, food, printouts and group-related work. We also warmly welcome any assistance with planning events, marketing and research for the group’s benefit.
Meetings are held at the Christian Community Church 2135 W. Wilson Ave. (and Hamilton), Chicago, IL On the 2nd Saturday of each month from 1:00 – 3:00pm
