I really appreciate this being done having dietary restrictions as well as many other people in Minnesota, but their website is incomplete. They don't have a contact that I can find on their website. I am interested in contacting them because I am planning to start a gofundme in which I would have the money wired to them as a school project. I had to research all the cities and I love this organization, but it lacks the effort to have people reach out to them. If you have any knowledge of this, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
My son has had a severe peanut allergy diagnosed at one year of age, prior to even eating any peanuts. AFAA has provided a significant amount of information to educate our family over the past 5 years and give guidance as he has aged into school. Due to the level of his peanut allergy we have not been able to participate in regular Twins baseball games. My son is a sporting fanatic and loves all of MN teams. He was so excited about being at Target Field and watching the Twins players in person he did not even care that we were loosing 0 - 9 when we left~!
My husband and I ran a campaign to raise funds for food allergy research and promote awareness of this issue. For this, we contacted hundreds of food allergy support group leaders throughout the United States. The Anaphylaxis and Food Allergy Association of Minnesota was the first organization to provide support for this campaign. They immediately reached out to their membership (2000 members at the time) through their e-newsletter, and continued to support us throughout the campaign. It is clear that they have a strong dedication to helping people with food allergies.
I have been involved in helping plan several events for this organization. The passion and care they have for people who are touched by food allergy issues is truly inspiring. AFAA is a caring organization that strives to advocate and support those struggling with life threatening food allergies.
