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.
