This article features a resource that provides inspiration and valuable insight to the food allergy community. We pledged to highlight 17 such resources for End Allergies Together's #DoYour17 campaign in 2016 which has since ended. You can still sponsor our effort with a donation. E-A-T underwrites all administrative costs, so 100% of your donation goes toward funding research into a cure for food allergy.
If you spend any time online researching food allergies, you’ve likely heard about Caroline Moassessi, a vocal advocate for the community. Drawing on her own experience raising two boys with food allergies and asthma, you’ll find her on her local TV station providing context to allergy-related topics, supporting stock epinephrine legislation in her state’s legislature, and presenting at an array of food allergy conferences nationwide. She was also responsible for helping draft her school district’s food allergy management guidelines that have served as a template for many other districts across the country.
Visiting Caroline’s blog, Grateful Foodie, is very much like stopping by your friend’s house for coffee and a chat, except this friend is dealing with many of the same issues you are. During your visit, you’ll swap recipes, discuss food allergy news, get her take on products, and learn more about the basics of allergy and asthma management. You might even be inspired to step up and advocate for your community!
