About Us


Thank you for your interest in the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) Decatur, IL Chapter. If you are looking for real, nourishing, local food and a supportive community to learn more about the WAPF and their nutritional principals, you have come to the right place!

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 A. Price.  Price’s studies of isolated non-industrialized people established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets.  His work culminated in the publication of probably the single most important book on nutrition written to date, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.

The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism.  WAPF supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture raising 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 Soy Alert! project.

Supporting the Foundation through an annual membership is vital for keeping the work of Dr.Price alive. We encourage you to join the Weston A. Price Foundation today! Membership benefits include a subscription to the Foundation’s quarterly journal “Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts”; a valuable publication dedicated dedicated to exploring the scientific validation dietary, agricultural and medical traditions throughout the world.  You can learn more about WAPF by visiting their website.  Membership, however, is not necessary to participate with your local chapter.
