Honor Your Child in the Strides for Safe Kids® Keepsake Program Book

Send a special message to a child with food allergies and support Kids With Food Allergies Foundation at the same time by purchasing a personal ad to honor your child(ren). For as little as $30, show a child with food allergies how proud you are of them and that you know they can do anything! This program book will be distributed to the expected 600-800 attendees at the Strides for Safe Kids® Expo in Philadelphia on September 9th. A program book will be mailed to all who purchase ad space in the book, even if you do not attend our event.

Your ongoing financial support (through donations like this keepsake book) is used to educate families with practical food allergy management strategies. By donating to Kids With Food Allergies Foundation, you can save children's lives and improve the quality of life for children and their families.


Kind Regards,

Lynda Mitchell
President

Must Read Forum Discussions

Our Kids With Food Allergies Foundation online community saves lives! Recently, one of our members asked about Arctic Zero frozen treats containing whey that did not have "MILK" listed in clear English on the ingredient statement.
