FACTS is a food allergy support group founded in March of 2003 by two local mothers of food-allergic children. Through FACTS, parents and children have an opportunity to network with other families facing similar challenges and find local and national resources to make the job of parenting a child with food allergies a bit less overwhelming. The group provides members a place to give and receive encouragement, learn coping strategies, and find pertinent food allergy information through guest speakers and other informative sessions. Part of our core mission is to educate our community (i.e. schools, day cares, restaurants, summer camps) about the serious nature of dealing with individuals with food allergies. To that end, we offer support to individuals, families, and groups (i.e. presentations). FACTS holds meetings every other month and sponsors a number of food-free celebrations throughout the year. Mission: We are dedicated to providing resources, support and encouragement to families coping with food allergies as well as raising awareness and educating the community regarding the unique needs of these families.
