Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota Holds Food Allergy Resource Fair
HOPKINS, Minn. 10/17/11 — Allergies to common foods like peanuts, eggs, milk and shellfish are on the rise, leaving families and schools more confused than ever on what is safe to eat. Individuals with food allergies, their families, teachers and caregivers will benefit from a FREE Food Allergy Resource Fair Saturday, November 12, 9:00 am- 12:00 pm, at the Hopkins Eisenhower Community Center at 1001 Highway 7 in Hopkins.
The Resource Fair will feature allergy-friendly food and product companies from around the United States. Many will provide food samples, coupons and detailed information on product safety and benefits. In addition, children can explore their creative side with art projects from KIDCREATE STUDIO. Allergists will be available at the “Ask the Doctor” booth to answer questions. Attendees can also learn more about the nonprofit organization Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota and purchase great products through a silent auction to support their efforts to strengthen families and communities affected by food allergies.
