Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) has a new online resource for families dining out with food allergies called SafeFARE. SafeFARE offers tools and resources for diners with food allergies, including tips for before and during your visit to a restaurant, a customizable “Food Allergy Alert” chef card, and a “Find a Restaurant” feature that enables visitors to locate allergy aware restaurants in their area. As a parent to a child with allergies, I know how difficult dining out can be so I hope you can take a few minutes to explore the SafeFARE website by visiting www.SafeFARE.org. You can also learn more about the program by checking out FARE’s special new PSA featuring top chefs Bryan Voltaggio and Mike Isabella.
In honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week I hope my readers can help spread the word about the program with your friends and family. The SafeFARE database of food allergy aware restaurants is just getting started and together we can help it grow! FARE urges families with food allergies to tell their local restaurants about the SafeFARE program and has created a flyer that can be downloaded and shared with restaurant staff and managers to let them know how to become a food allergy aware restaurant.

There was a powdered milk spill in our town, a local food manufacturing company had a malfunction in production resulting in powdered milk overflowing. Residents woke up to cars, streets and houses covered in powdered milk. Then there was some rain overnight so the streets were literally covered in milk.
We are lucky we are a couple of miles away from this but the first thing I thought of is this is not good for someone (like my son) with a Dairy allergy.
As I was reading an article from a local newspaper, this sentence I did not agree with:
"I explained to him that we all drink milk, but if too much of this organic material gets into the water, it's not good for the fish," Mueller said.
We do NOT all drink milk and it can be harmful when you have a dairy allergy. I guess this can happen when you live in the dairy state.
