What we're about
http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/a/c/d/event_15683245.jpeg SacFoodAllergy - Food Allergy Support of Sacramento (FASS) is a volunteer-run food allergy support group created in 2003 to provide resources and a network of support for parents and caregivers of food allergic kids.
Our mission is to provide a supportive environment to those affected by food allergies and to network in order to educate ourselves and others while raising public awareness and advocating positive change.
Our Goals are to:
Share information about local issues such as the availability of hard-to-find products, daycare providers, schools and babysitting
Share day-to-day tips and recipes for living with food allergies and educate our community about food allergies
Learn more about food allergies from guest speakers.
Founded in 2003 by parents of food allergic children, Jennifer Bingham and Liz Krauss wanted face to face support and connections to other parents to discuss how best to manage FAs on a daily basis.
We are mostly parents of kids with FAs although we also have members that have FAs as adults. We always look for volunteers to help make our group great.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with moderation of forums, calendar, organizing speaker events. We are also looking for a non-food related venue for our support meetings.
We hope that using this forum will keep us in touch between meetings.
Please join in our forums, attend a meetup, and enjoy connecting with parents of food-allergic children!
DISCLAIMER: Food Allergy Support of Sacramento (FASS) is a parent-run group providing emotional support and non-medical information to assist in the day-to-day difficulties presented by food allergies. Medical advice will not be given at any meetings. We believe in the value and importance of each member consulting their own medical advisor for information specific to the food allergic individual's medical history.
