This past Saturday, November 10, 2012 I hosted the first Healthy Food Happy Wallet Conference here is St Louis, MO. At 9am attendees flowed into the SLU’s Allied Health Multi-pupose Room.
Our first speaker of the day was Jeri Villareal owner of Our City Farm located in U-City. Our City Farm produces poultry, fresh eggs and a variety of herbs and produce. Jeri spoke about what all the egg carton labels you see at the grocery store mean. People were shocked to see that many of the labels they thought were good for their families are actually just marketing. She explained how important it is to choose meats from animals that have been treated humanely. Humanely treated animals have less hormones and higher healthy fats like Omega3.
Maude D. Bauschard, Maude’s Market in South City, spoke about saving on and getting better quality produce by using CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs. Maude’s market has several CSA option. She explained how CSA programs can work for even the busiest family. Maude explained how purchasing from CSA programs can benefit families and local farmers.

Sisters, Jill Smith and Tracy Gruener , started one of the first Co-Ops in St Louis, Community Helpings CoOp. They explained how the Co-Op can save you money on produce. Tracy, mother of 4, explained how she makes the best use of her produce to make sure it doesn’t go to waste.
