Roger Beachy Director

The director of USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy was in St. Louis recently visiting the Old North co-op and discussing the issue of nutrition.
Here in St. Louis, the Old North Grocery Co-op opened last summer, in an effort to increase healthy food options in an underserved part of the city. It’s the first co-op in Missouri to serve a predominantly low-income neighborhood. Beachy says many communities don’t have public transportation, and without it, people are stuck with whatever food is available in walking distance – usually, a less healthy selection than most parents would like for their children.

Dave Beachy Sarasota Florida

Here is a picture of Dave Beachy with a Halibut he caught, Kodiak Island Alaska. It weighed over two hundred pounds. Dave is a Real estate broker at Beachy Properties. Dave posted this picture on his Face Book and I copied it from there. Hope Dave doesn't mind. It is too good not to share. I now have pictures of three Beachy men each with a Halibut they caught that went well over two hundred pounds. Halibut is in the top three best eating fish in the sea. (my opinion)
