Weston A. Price Foundation - Victoria BC Chapter

SECTION I: GENERAL INFORMATION
The non-profit Weston A. Price Foundation - Victoria Chapter maintains a list of locally sourced nutrient-dense farm-fresh foods that can be viewed here: http://chapters.westonaprice.org/victoriabc/local-sources-of-traditional... We also have a Face Book page for the chapter here: http://www.facebook.com/wapfvancouverislandchapter The mission of WAPF is to restore nutrient-dense foods to the diet through education, research and activism. The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the 1920/30's research of Canadian-born nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats. WAPF 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-based infant formula. The board and membership of the Weston A. Price Foundation stand united in the belief that modern technology should be harnessed as a servant to the wise and nurturing traditions of our ancestors rather than used as a force destructive to the environment and human health; and that science and knowledge can validate those traditions. The Foundation's quarterly journal, Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts, is dedicated to exploring the scientific validation of dietary, agricultural and medical traditions throughout the world. It features illuminating and thought-provoking articles on current scientific research; human diets; non-toxic agriculture; and holistic therapies. The journal also serves as a reference for sources of foods that have been conscientiously grown and processed.
