Jordan and Marbara Stivers of Buechel, have been members of the WLBC since 2013. Jordan is a food scientist who also teaches in a prison. Marbara is a former public school teacher and the librarian at Highview Baptist Church. Former homeschoolers, the current empty-nesters get to visit their children, Andrew, in San Francisco and Emily, in New York City.
Marbara cooks Paleo and enjoys reading and walking. Jordan enjoys golf and piddling in the garage. They love the connection that WLBC has to local farmers and the community of support that members have with each other!
Jeannie Horton joined WLBC in March 2012 and is currently in charge of stocking and upkeep of the spice rack. Jeannie grew up in Louisville and has been employed at a financial consulting firm, ProBank Austin, for 16 years. She has three grown children (and grandchildren!) and enjoys walking, gardening and sewing in her hard-to-find free time.
She first joined the club when looking for a source for healthy, clean milk (as one of her sons could not digest pasteurized milk, but did fine on raw milk!), but since joining has learned so much from fellow club members on the importance of supporting local farmers, fair prices, sustainable agriculture, healthy livestock, and nutrient dense foods. She thanks all those involved who helped lead her to WLBC!
The DeLodders have been members of WLBC since 2010 when they began looking for more options for real food. Eric is an engineer, and Mary Kathryn is a leader with Kentucky Home Birth Coalition. Their three children, Henry, Isaac, and Audrey, have grown up coming to club pick-up nearly every week. Mary Kathryn also helps out with various things at WLBC such as managing the member swap shelf and moderating the private Facebook group.
The DeLodders really appreciate knowing that all the meat from WLBC that they feed their family is great quality. They also love the community of people that make up the club!
Biven and Sarah Toma have been members of WLBC since 2014. After moving to Louisville from Kurdistan, they were looking for a reliable source of real milk and whole foods! While working at Louisville Family Chiropractic, Sarah heard about the Whole Life Buying Club! She is now a Placenta Encapsulation provider and (mostly) stay at home mom to their daughter. Biven is a Web Developer at Louisville Geek and has been happy to find fresh food that was sourced close to home like he grew up with in Iraq.
Best of all, the Tomas are glad to support local family farms in their endeavor to provide sustainable food for our communities. The wealth of knowledge and wisdom within the WLBC community has helped their family grow in their understanding and living a whole food lifestyle!
