Natural Foods Warehouse Crabapple Allergy Friendly Grocery Store Tour & Tasting, Monday May 14th

Natural Foods Warehouse on Crabapple Rd., is hosting an allergy friendly grocery tour and tasting on Monday, May 14th in honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week. This is an opportunity to sample the newest allergy friendly products on the market.

Vendors will be on-site and allergy friendly samples will include Bearitos, Just Tomato, Galaxy, Mina’s, Enjoy Life, Earth Balance, Udi’s, Dandie’s, and Tofutti products, just to name a few!

Allergy friendly cookbooks such as Allergy Free Desserts and the Food Allergy Mama’s Cookbook, plus many more will be available for purchase.

There will be door prizes, giveaways and more!

Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta will receive 5 percent of all sales on that day as part of the allergy friendly grocery store tour & tasting, hosted by Natural Foods Warehouse and Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta. Proceeds will help place food allergy educational materials in Georgia schools.

This nonprofit organization helps raise awareness of food allergy management and the seriousness in food allergy reactions in schools, daycares, and restaurants. The organization also hosts support group meetings, mom’s night out dinners, and provides a safe environment for food allergic children to participate in, through yearly activities and programs.

President and Founder Karen Harris say they plan to use most of the funds to purchase educational materials and stock epinephrine for Georgia schools. Delivering educational presentations and ensuring schools are stocked with life-saving medication can help to reduce the risk of food allergy reactions and fatalities in food allergic students.

Be sure to stop by the resource table to browse our food allergy educational materials. Natural Foods Warehouse hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday with the tour taking place 11 a.m – 2 p.m. The store is located in in Roswell at 12315 Crabapple Rd.
