Volunteers Are the Lifeblood of Our Organization

KFA has several volunteer opportunities. Our organization relies on enthusiastic and supportive volunteers to help us host local events, provide an active online community and more.

Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child? You can help us keep children with food allergies safe and healthy! As a member of our volunteer team, you will make a difference in the lives of children with food allergies. Interested?  Please tell us about yourself and apply to join our team!

Online Community Volunteers

Are you ready to take the next step in becoming a leader in the food allergy community and join our team? We are looking for community members willing to step up into a leadership role to welcome new parents, answer questions, moderate discussions, and introduce members to all KFA offers to families. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, we want you on our team!

If you have been a KFA community member for at least three months and post on our support forums or social media platforms at least a few days per week, we encourage you to apply! We are looking for people who are enthusiastic about helping other parents manage food allergies. Opportunities exist for you to assist us on our support forums, on social media, on advisory boards and more. The time commitment ranges from 1-5 hours per week and is flexible.


Event Volunteers

Local food allergy events are only successful with the generous help of volunteers. If you are available to assist with an event, or would like to help us bring an event to your local community, please let us know!  You can indicate that you would like to volunteer when you complete your event registration. Or, call Michele Cassalia at (215) 230-5394 or Sanaz Eftekhari at (202) 974-1225.

"My daughter is 7 years old and is thriving and we have KFA to thank! We have been aware of her milk allergy from the time she was 2 weeks old. Her first 2 years were so hard, I found KFA after her first anaphylaxis. They have been my main support through the years. There are so many changes as children grow with how their allergy affects their lives physically and emotionally. It is so valuable to hear from other parents who are going through it or have already been there and can give guidance. I have also been able to educate myself, our family and our schools with the webinars and educational materials they provide. All I have learned from KFA has made a huge impact on how full and wonderful her life is with her milk allergy...and how healthy she is :) I'm so grateful we've had KFA in our allergy journey, to support and guide us during the difficult times and to share our joy when we've figured things out!" -jennyay
