Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in the Rockland County Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (RWAPF)!   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 Rockland County Chapter so that the Foundation knows where to link membership. Our local chapter does not see any of the funds directly but the Chapter that increases membership the most each year gets a prize of the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.

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. The Foundation 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.

What is the purpose of this Rockland County WAPF Local Chapter?

This is the official site for the Rockland County 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 and around Rockland County.  To ask questions and engage in discussions with the group, please join our Facebook Page.  Feel free to post relevant videos, share links, and upload photos.  Comments are also welcome on this page in response to any post. You can also visit our meetup page, Rockland County Whole Food Nutrition Meetup Group. If you would like more information about our local chapter, you can email  Jill Cruz .

The Rockland County 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 should also serve 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 out about and RSVP to our regular events. Also you will find relevant articles and calls to action as well as information on local resources, real food recipes, and book recommendations.  For interacting personally with like-minded members, just join our Facebook page.

When do we meet?

We hold monthly meetings 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 frequent visits to local farms, and in the cold season we schedule events such as film showings, lectures and potlucks.

There usually is a fee of about 6-15$ for the meetings 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.
