On Thursday, Sept. 24 from 11 am to 2 pm, Philadelphia will hold its first Food Allergy Fair. The fair is being hosted by Allergy and Asthma Specialists and Prototype Advertising. I contacted the organizers to find out the purpose of the event. Here's what I was told:
"This is an educational experience for adults with food allergies or caring for someone with food allergies. The adult with food allergies or the adult caring for individuals is often overlooked. We are trying to give Moms the opportunity to explore food allergy options without the kids around. Also, we hope to offer grown up food options to food allergy sufferers."
Area chefs, nutritionists and doctors will be on-hand to talk to visitors.
I plan to attend. Anyone want to meet up?
