First-Time Visitors to Kids With Food Allergies


As the parent of a son who's had multiple food allergies since birth, I would like to welcome you to the Kids With Food Allergies Foundation! KFA is a nonprofit charity dedicated to improving the lives of families raising children with food allergies and empowering them to create safe and healthy lives for their children. We offer our wonderful, caring online community, Parents of Food Allergic Kids (POFAK™), as well as resources on our website to assist you in parenting and caring for your children.

Most of what we offer is freely accessible by all of our website visitors or by registering as an Associate Member, which is free. We also offer a Family Membership which provides special access to some valuable additional benefits. To find out more about the benefits of full access that Family Membership offers, please see our Membership Guide.

I encourage you to take your time to look around and find out how we can help you. Here are some highlights:

Kids With Food Allergies Online Support Community is our most popular and active feature and where parents connect with each other for 24x7 support on our support forums. These forums are moderated by a trained volunteer support team to nurture and encourage a safe community.
Recipes in our Safe Eats ™ recipe database offers 1,200 allergy-friendly recipes for your family in a searchable format. We welcome you to take a sneak preview of our food allergy recipes that are milk free, soy free, egg free, peanut free, wheat free, nut free and more.
Resources will give you some practical, "been there" tips from other parents, articles and frequently asked questions (FAQs) developed by our Medical Advisory Team, and more. Our most popular resources are our "New Allergy Food Product" reports and our "Allergen Avoidance Lists."
News, Research and Food Allergy Recalls Blog notify you of FDA and USDA food allergy recall alerts, as well as news and research updates.
Shop KFA offers items sporting our Kids With Food Allergies Foundation logo, and holiday cards that promote allergy awareness.
Book Shop features food allergy books (for adults and children) and allergy cookbooks with a portion of the proceeds of your purchases going to support KFA.
The Allergy Buyer's Guide is a directory of allergy-friendly businesses to help you find allergy-safe foods, allergy identifiers, allergy awareness products, peanut allergy posters and more.
Kids With Food Allergies Leadership Blog will keep you updated with announcements and news regarding Kids With Food Allergies.

If you’d like to learn more about who we are, look around in our About section, where you can find out about our Mission, see who comprises our volunteer Board of Directors and our multi-disciplinary Medical Advisory Team. Our About section also will tell you more about volunteer opportunities, other ways you can support our tax-exempt nonprofit organization and ways you can join as a member.

As a community of families, businesses and supporters working together, we can do great things to improve the quality of life for families and and their children.

I invite you to join and get involved by participating, volunteering or fundraising to support our efforts!
