Food Allergy Friends

Food Allergy Friends is a support group for children ages 5-12 living with food allergies. Children will interact in a fun, supportive environment with other children who have similar allergies and challenges. In addition, they will learn strategies for food allergy management and the handling of difficult situations (e.g. teasing/bullying), gain valuable skills in coping with food allergies, and build confidence as individuals living with food allergies.
