Food Allergy Awareness Week: Tools for the Lunchroom

Food Allergy Awareness Week is being observed May 12-18, 2013. We thought "What better time to debut two BRAND NEW food allergy resources?" As these issues increase, it's important to educate staff, students, parents, and others on the importance of being aware of food allergies and sensitivities. Take a look at the resources below to help you do just that.

It might be nice to have some handouts in the school lunchroom to help arm with kids with allergies with information to share with their friends. (It just might save a life.) It’s also informative for parents and teachers who don’t work with allergies and foods issues as closely as the food service professionals do!
