Welcome to the Food Allergy Education Network Website.
2012 was another fantastic year for our organization. We had a great Food Allergy Awareness Week, making trips to the Connecticut State Capitol to meet with Governor Malloy and other legislators. We empowered our children by performing in a play based on the book The Princess and the Peanut A Royally Allergic Fairytale by Sue Ganz. We also honored those in our lives that have been so vigilant with in keeping our children safe and included. We continue to hold free educational workshops for our community and have been successful in expanding beyond our local area. We are proud that we had a continued wide presence in the media on legislative and local issues and our Facebook Page has grown from 66 likes to over 550 in one year! We know firsthand that, when it comes to food allergies, education saves lives.
Our goal with this website is to filter through the overwhelming amount of information and only bring you the best and most useful. This is a goal that we will continually be working toward. We hope that you find our website to be easy to navigate and filled with helpful information and resources that can be shared with others.
We continue to add to the resources available so be sure to check back often. All of the resources we create will be downloadable and printable. You can find them by clicking on the resources tab. Each week we will have a new blog post. The blog will be filled with advice and information about living with food allergies.
Please check out our video series here on our website featuring Jamie Perillo, LPSW, with helpful strategies for the emotional development of your child with food allergies.
We want to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us at any time and to comment on our blog. Together we can ensure the safety and wellness of children with food allergies.
Here’s to 2013!
