As some of you may be aware, we are a project of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The Foundation conducts research, advocates for legislation that reflects their dietary recommendations and provides educational content focused on wise traditions in food, farming and the healing arts. They produce a weekly podcast, publish articles in their Wise Traditions journal, which are available on their website, maintain the westonaprice.org and realmilk.com websites, contribute to the Nourishing Our Children educational initiative [that’s us!] , and offer guidance to some 500 chapters worldwide. All of this is free to the public, but isn’t free to create. The Weston A. Price Foundation is members supported and rely on these critical funds to continue to provide all that they do.
In short, without them, we would not continue with our educational initiative. I’d close down shop, so to speak, because their recommendations are the basis of ours, and they serve as our non-profit fiscal sponsor. I have served in a position of leadership since 2004, as a voluntary chapter leader, honorary board member and director of Nourishing Our Children because I know we are changing lives! We can’t do it with your support, however.

I would love to become a member because I’ve been one previously (funds are tight right now due to home repair from last summer’s hurricane). I learned about the WAPF a few months after giving birth to my first daughter (unfortunately, I had the Standard American diet that pregnancy). With my second daughter, I did the WAPF (except for raw milk), and the results were amazing, a mild mannered baby and no postpartum depression. My second daughter is now two and she has that trademark WAPF smile. I now encourage others who are expecting to give the WAPF diet a try.
I benefit daily from Weston A. Price via my crispy nuts and my daily feedings of kefir grains neither of which I would have known without this Foundation. WAPF guides me to take baby steps (the style I do best) with great leadership toward wiser, traditional nutritional methods. I have tepache fermenting on my counter right now; a pineapple rine, fermented drink I would not have tried if not for this Foundations teaching of fermented drinks. I’ve appreciated the socialization of dining together and attending Natural Grocers presentations (going again tomorrow and invited people to join me) with fellow traditionalists. Just now picking up on soaking beans to make dosas cooked in ghee.Yumm. Feels so good to know fats are healthy and sacieating. Found a1 a1(just learned that info.) supplier of raw cow’s milk last week and will try….again…to make raw milk the staple here. With kefir I rarely use straight milk anymore. I was blessed to get to talk, one-on-one, with Sally Fallon and learn we share a heritage of cheesemaking. Never before had such appreciation for learning abd applying sound nutrition! WAPF becomes “us” who follow this awesome lifestyle! Grateful. The new children’s cookbook….have you checked that out yet? Illustrates every category of the WAPF teachings. Who knew food could be so exciting to share?
ooops…fixed a typo and this one can be deleted….if only I knew how. Thanks for “caretaking” SP!
The WAPF is a priceless tool! As a February graduate of NTA I use their information daily! The business focuses on empowering families with the tools and information they need to fuel their families with properly-prepared nutrient-dense meals. I would love to be a member both for their support and to lend my support of their amazing work!

Connecting with WAPF at the conference in SF in 20?? (2008?9?) has been wonderfully educational for me. For one thing, I had the opportunity to hear such informative speakers. (Dr. Cowan, for one, is still “my doctor” because of WAPF and has brought so much to the life of my family with his infinite wisdom.) (Also, hearing Jeffrey Smith was the first I learned of the evils of GMOs.) (Aaaannnd getting to hear Sally Fallon and meet her in person was life changing.) Because of WAPF, we are connected with a community of like minded people whose values for life and health have a depth of reality we find very important. I don’t know why I have not joined before now. Now is the time! Thank you, Sandrine. Last, but not in the least least, I have connected with the lovely Sandrine and had the privilege to witness and benefit from just a fraction of your important contributions to humanity. 💖🌟
I would love to be a member. I have been on a diligent search of all that is healthy for me after nearly dying about four years ago from an ignorantly unhealthy diet. The principals of the Weston Price Foundation has greatly benefitted me. My health has improved greatly but I have a long way to go yet. It is an ongoing life mission. Thank you for this opportunity.
As soon as I had access to the internet I began researching a healthy lifestyle and found the Weston Price foundation. Specifically Sally Fallon and her book Nourishing Traditions. I learned to make most foods from scratch at home for the best way to avoid chemicals. I learned how to cook and eat vegetables that I hadn’t grown up eating, like brussels sprouts. Now I am happy to say my daughter follows a healthy lifestyle for my grandchildren.
I’d love to be a part of this drawing! I’ve used the Weston Price website as a resource many times, and would love to gain access to the additional supports and resources offered through membership. My daughter and I have both benefitted hugely from reading Nourishing Traditions and following the nutrient-dense approach to eating. I’ve been eating this way for over a year and am truly surprised by the physical AND emotional benefits. Thanks for the opportunity! – Steph McMahon
I love the WAPF. They are doing such important work spreading the message of a real, nutrient dense diet. I would love to become a member again. I was several years ago but as my husband is in grad school and we have 2 babies, our budget hasn’t allowed for it. I miss the resources – especially the journal!
I’ve been following WAPF for a long time, and it has opened my eyes to a lot of myths the world believes about food. i have not been able to afford to be an official member, but I think having access to membership benefits would be wonderful. The leadership and members are amazing, especially Sandrine. I have watched her put personal issues aside and really help and guide people. She instills community and makes sure everyone is getting good information.Nourishing Our Children really considers the problems of being a modern family while honoring traditions.
I would love to be a member. Our health issues have been greatly helped by the change of eating we have done since a friend introduced us to Nutrition Traditions. The importance of raw milk and fermented foods is a great way to spread the news of Weston Price. I have borrowed the published magazines from friends, now we have moved away. I would like my own membership. Health expenditures stops me from obtaining one. Thank you for all you do to help us stay in the know on food issues.
I would love to be a member! I’m trying to find all which is best for me and my family ( 2 kids), And I found the Weston A Price foundation on Facebook and since then I’m excited to know more about this foundation and apply all the wise traditions , hoping that I can heal my FMF through following the steps of the WAPF ! Thanks for sharing the knowledge and hope to be a member one day !
I would love to become a member because I’ve been following the WAPF site for some time and have benefitted greatly from the research there. I often find so much conflicting information out there about diet and which is best for growing children. It’s been so helpful to find an unbiased source that has solid research behind it!! Many of the articles have helped me find the flaws in some popular diets we’ve been tempted to try. I’ve also relied on the site to find raw milk and connect with local chapters. It’s been an excellent resource in finding local produce and meat this way! Nourishing our children has helped in a similar way – providing level headed and solid research behind a truly Nourishing diet. I am so grateful to have the site at my finger tips for tips and recipes!
This is great!
I have wanted to become a member of the Westin A Price Foundation for years, but, as with most families we don’t have he cash to put towards that sort of things. I have been reading their materials (and Sally Fallon’s) for years and believe so much more in real food than ever before. Someday I hope I can attend their conference too. Thanks for this opportunity.
What an amazing giveaway! I was turned on to the Weston Price foundation 6 years ago when I became pregnant with my first child. I ate a healthy WAPF diet, and was sure I was destined to be a super mom and breast feed my new baby like a rock star!! After several lactation specialists, an sms system, constant pumping and latching baby, supplements, galactagogs, and guilt, my beautiful baby girl was failing to thrive and I was emotionally broken. I was devastated at the thought of giving my baby powdered formula with ingredients that were in identifiable to me. I turned to WAPF and put my last bit of hope in the raw cow’s milk formula.
My baby girl was so happy and full and I finally got the saying “milk drunk”. I am forever grateful for the homemade raw cow’s milk formula!!!
My daughter is now almost six, she’s never sick, outgoing, amazingly creative, and thriving! She started kindergarten this year through an independent study academy and is already working on 2nd grade curriculum. My 7 month old son also thrives on WAPF formula. I appreciate the nourishing our children page for quick tips, awesome links, studies etc. And being able to connect with like minded individuals. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this amazing giveaway❤❤❤
Being a mom has driven me to be more responsible and accountable for what I put in my body. I’d love to be a member of the WAPF because I’d like to learn more about making the best nutritional choices for my family. Their years of intense research have become a reliable resource when making decisions revolving around our family’s lifestyle. As a breastfeeding mom, especially, I’ve learned to count on the WAPF’s suggested vitamin and minerals guidelines to ensure I stay healthy and provide the best nourishment for my nurseling. The Mounting our Children book has helped to reinforce what I’m learning and is a valuable resource where I can reach out to others who understand this way of life.
Sorry for my typo! I meant “Nourishing our Children group”.
I would love to join WAPF. I am still in the beginning stages of learning about his research and would like to know more. I have benefitted by reading and seeing how the diet directly impacts development based on proof. I have benefited from the group by having a place to come to for answers and likeminded parents. Thank you for the opportunity.
The Weston A Price Foundation is an incredible resource to us with their guidance and articles regarding nutrition. I have shared their guidance with many others and many have found help and wisdom not found elsewhere. The most helpful to me has been information about preparing grains and beans. I used to think that whole wheat bread and oatmeal (unsoaked) were a good part of a healthy diet, but the info from WAPF turns this thinking on its head. It has been so wonderful to use this knowledge to feed my young family quality foods.
I would love to be a WAPF member because they’ve taught me all I need to know about healthy foods and lifestyle! 5 years ago I started out researching about how to avoid GMOs and and never realized how much I would discover from the foundation. I now am a huge raw milk drinker and advocate, have veggies fermenting all over the house, have a veggie CSA and most of all have learned to not be afraid of healthy fats like butter that I used to think were bad for me. I would love to start a career in the field of traditional nutrition/health. I don’t have kids, but still enjoy reading Nourishing our Children- there is just so much good information for everyone! I am really hoping to go to the WAPF conference this year, it’s the closest one to home for me since I starting following WAPF!
I would love to win, because finances are such that I can’t purchase at this time as a widowed, home schooling mother. Because I am a cancer survivor, I’m always learning how to stay healthy and enjoyed Sally Fallon’s NT book. I didn’t know about the NT children’s book, so I will need to check that out as soon as possible. Thanks for considering me in the drawing :)
My yoga student and close friend Vicki McConnell, who is a WAPF chapter leader, has opened my eyes to the world of Weston Price by giving me the Wise Traditions cookbook, turning me on to kamboucha, supplying me with kefir and raw milk on a regular basis, and sharing numerous articles and information I would never have the time or gumption to find on my own . I’m truly grateful. I would like to show her my enthusiasm for her efforts and the benefits I’ve received from them, as well as be able to share more those benefits with my yoga students, by becoming a member. Unfortunately the difference between a gallon of raw milk and that of store milk , ha ha, combined with other financial hardships I’ve incurred since buying a new home 2 years ago has left me unable to afford becoming a member :(

This is my third comment. Realized my first was only 4 sentences. I tied to correct but instead have two entries the second with the required 5 sentences. Hope you can delete this one and the first. : )
I would love to become a member (but cannot afford to do so, even at this wonderful price offer ) so I can access the members only facebook groups & interact easier with other like minded folks. I tell people ALL the time about Weston A. Price’s work, the foundation & share my nourishing traditions cookbook with others, & have in the past given them as wedding gifts ! I’ve benefited from the research in so many ways, but what comes to mind is the information on vegetarianism (esp. now that my sister is touting all vegan, plant based diet), vit. A (I have had issues converting or absorbing carotenes ) & info on feeding babies & kids, which brings us to the last question. I don’t have kids, but am helping care for my niece & nephew, & babysit others so this is very helpful & encouraging to me & to know what to do/where to turn for help, if I or a friend ever need to supplement breast milk with ‘formula’ for baby. I really hope I may win a membership, It will be greatly treasured !!! But, i realize others may deserve or need it more than I & I hope they get it, too !
I would like to become a member of the Weston A Price Foundation to aid in my studies with the Nutritional Therapy Association. Grateful for all the wonderful information you share! Once I graduate I plan on sharing this information in my community.
I’d like to become a member to learn more about the WAPF diet. I also would be interested in seeing the shopping guide to learn better brands to purchase. We are about 9 months into this new WAPF lifestyle and learn more every day. We now drink raw milk, take cod liver oil and have developed several other beneficial eating habits. I make milk kefir daily and soaked granola every other week. We are incorporating more and more WAPF recipes into our cooking plans and so far they all taste great!
When I saw the news today that our governor appointed a new state interim Ag Commissioner–who happens to be an individual that enjoys drinking raw milk, the thought once again entered my mind today that I should join the WAPF and start a chapter to help gain more raw milk freedom for my state. I would also like to work with others to help people find quality food in our area. There is only one chapter in my state and it is not near me. The WAPF website is a source that I trust when I have questions about a topic. I have also used it to teach my high schooler about nutrition. It is a site I send people to when they have questions on social media. I love Nourishing Our Children because it encourages me that there are others like me that are trying to bring up our children well-fed in the midst of an unhealthy culture. It is a site that I rely on as well.
What a wonderful getaway – I would love to be a member and have access to more information and interaction. I have benefited so much from the information in Nourishing Traditions and on the WAPF website – I suffer from chronic illness and adopting an easy to digest, traditional diet including lots of fermented foods has made enough of a difference that I can now hope that there is a future for me! I am starting to get my life back. After having such great results I bought the NT cookbook for children (after reading about on the Nourishing Our Children blog), and now I am using it to teach my kids to eat this way…they would be horrified if I tried to feed them margarine! I cannot afford a membership so this giveaway is exciting for me!
I would like a membership to WAPF so that I can be more involved with the local chapter and become a stronger influence in my community. The Wise Traditions diet is a rabbit-hole of tribal knowledge that has been lost over the last few generations. Sadly, I was brought here through my own experiences growing up with the Standard American Diet, losing my mother to pancreatic cancer and watching my son suffer with life-threatening allergies and symptoms of autism. I have witnessed healing with WAPF recommendations though, and I will continue through this rabbit hole, delving deeper into Nourishing my family the way God intended.
What is the point of being healthy and healing though, if all your friends and neighbors keep going on their paths of SAD? It is my mission that my children grow up healthy and also become ambassadors for Wise Traditions so that they will not have to witness friends and neighbors lose the battles to cancers and other ailments of epidemic proportions.
Thank you for consideration of the gift of membership.
