Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:
We have an exciting opportunity to expand access to locally produced meat for consumers around the country! U.S. Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) have introduced legislation to make it easier for small farms and ranches to sell locally raised and processed meat to consumers.
H.R. 3187, the Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption (PRIME) Act, would give individual states the freedom to permit intra-state distribution of custom-slaughtered meat to individual consumers and to restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores that directly serve consumers. Custom-processed beef, pork, lamb, and goat are covered under the bill.

Action Alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation: Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines
Deadline for comments April 8, 2015
The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has released its draft proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines, and they go even further than the previous ones in attacking nutritious foods like full-fat dairy, red meat, and any food with saturated fat.
The Dietary Guidelines form the basis of federal nutrition policy and food assistance programs, so the effects can be very far-reaching.
Symposium Free for the Public and Government Officials through Live Streaming
The annual raw milk symposium presented by the Weston A. Price Foundation will be available to the public and to government officials through livestreaming (and archived).
The session will feature raw milk experts and activists, including Mark McAfee, owner of the largest raw milk dairy in California and chairman of the Raw Milk Institute, Pete Kennedy, president of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and Sally Fallon Morell, founder of A Campaign for Real Milk.
If your children seem to have more health problems than they should, join us to learn how you can help them to be healthier.

Come to the presentation to learn how you and your family can be healthier and better nourished.
The Nourishing Our Children series includes 12 sections plus an introduction.
Our chapter Meetup group, Houston Real Food Nutrition, is hosting a meeting August 16th to discuss the research of Dr. Weston A. Price and the principles of traditional diets. See below for more information about time and location.
We will have a video about Dr. Price’s research followed by a slide show and discussion of the underlying characteristics of nourishing traditional diets.
What you will learn about traditional diets:
–What kinds of foods are necessary for a nutrient-dense diet
–What kinds of foods should be avoided for the best health
–Which nutrients are essential
The Last Organic Outpost is a hidden gem in the 5th ward of North Houston. As you drive into the small neighborhood there is nothing to prepare you as you turn into this 2 acre lot full of warm, healthy soil, budding plants, thriving bees and caring hands. Walking into this place is like walking into a different world leaving the hustle and bustle of the city on your heals, awaiting your return. But for at least a little while, you are a farmer. Caring for your crops, clearing weeds, tending to the bees, cleaning and organizing the property, and preparing for another harvest. You’re greeted with smiles and handshakes from Joe, the head farmer, and appreciation from all the other volunteers that keep this amazing place going.
Food Renegade is helping to raise funds for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund.
By supporting the raffle, you will also benefit the FTCLDF.
When the FDA and other government officials raid a peace-loving Amish farmer’s home with guns drawn because he’s providing healthy, nourishing raw milk directly to consumers, who does that Amish farmer call?
