"Think You Can’t Afford to Eat Organic? Think again!"

How to Nourish Growing Bodies and Minds With Foods That You Can Feel Good About on a Limited Budget

For many homeschooling households, mothers and fathers willingly make the sacrifice to live on a single income.  We do so that we can be the greatest influence in our children’s lives to teach, guide and educate them from a Biblical worldview.  But raising a family in a home with only one income can mean making other scarifies that we didn't plan to make such as the quality of food our family eats and its overall nutrition.  Often times it is easy to think that less money means fewer resources.  That is not always true.  Our God has made provisions in some unlikely places!

This month, author A.B. Welch will join us, as she discusses what parents need to know to help their children get a nutritious diet without breaking the bank.  She will help navigate through the maze of organic, % organic, verified non-gmo and third party non-gmo as well as why to eat organic foods and what happens if we don’t.  With 5 years of experience shopping at the 99 Cents Only Stores to acquire a 90% organic and non-gmo family diet, Andrea is educating families on how to eat more and more organic foods all while saving money!  This mother of six provides a wealth of experience and information you won't want to miss. During this meeting, we will discuss:

  • What is organic? What is non-gmo?

  • How food impacts the brain and growing body.

  • Understanding the resource of the 99 Cents Only Stores for healthy foods.

  • Helpful hints mentioned in her book to get the most out of the chain store.

  • Learning about percentage eating and gaining a higher quantity of organic foods in your home over time.

  • Food allergies, labeling, medication and the part they play in our current FDA diet.

  • Gardening as tool and healthy resource for organic living.

  • Trusting God to provide a high quality food supply for guided shopping experience.

Plan to attend this meeting to lay the foundation for success in the lives and health of your family.  Invite a friend to come (with their spouse) - they'll be glad you did!

Bring your homegrown fruits and vegetables to the meeting to share with other families!

Andrea Welch is a mother of six and has been wife to her husband Maurice for almost 12 years. She has been homeschooling for 3 years now. An anointed worship leader and teacher of 30 years, she has a passion for education and fostering a love of learning. It was through a series of events Andrea became aware of organic shopping at the 99 Cents Only Stores. She instantly wanted to share the knowledge of good nutrition at an affordable price with other families in similar situations. Her book, “How to Shop Mostly Organic at the 99 Cents Only Stores” was self-published in June of 2015. Her experience, writings and passion sparked a bit of a crusade to bring about awareness of eating organic and non-GMO foods to families in need. In December 2015 she joined forces with the retail chain to reach a wider demographic and educate on how small changes can bring about huge results when it comes to nutrition.

Andrea currently serves on the Church Council and as a worship leader at the Resurrection Life Fellowship (RLF) Church in Westchester, California. Through her teaching and speaking engagements, she shares real-life stories of hope, encouragement and inspiration.
