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~!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

AFAA has provided our family with education on allergies and how to respond appropriately to them. They have worked with the Twin's baseball team to arrange for peanut free sections at Target Field!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money to proceed in providing the education and events more frequently. Allergies are more common and more environments need to know how to safely address severe allergies. Educate everyone!

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.

Through their newsletters, I've observed the creative ways they support food allergy awareness, fundraising, and education.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

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.

I have learned much from AFAA and have been able to use the information when I work with caterers to provide more value to clients when they have members with allergies.
