Everyone Eats - Allergy Free Options

Everyone Eats provides underserved communities with allergy friendly food donations.  About 32 Million people in the U.S. suffer from food allergies.  This population not only needs to worry about food allergies but they also have to worry about what they are going to eat next.  In partnership with FARE’S TAG (teenage advocacy group), a local student chose to work on a food drive specifically for people affected by life threatening allergies.  She is successfully raising awareness about the need to donate food to people with food allergies.  This assistance provides a little bit of freedom and peace of mind to this population.
