May is here and it's officially Allergy Awareness Month! This is a time to come together as a community and raise awareness about the importance of food allergies. Did you know that over 32 million people in the US suffer from food allergies?
At YumEarth, we are committed to creating delicious treats that are free from the top 9 common food allergies, including: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish and sesame. Support your friends, family and the community this month by sharing safe snacks and some of these helpful resources too!
- Elijah-Alavi Foundation: Works to ensure that all children with severe food allergies and asthma have safe spaces to learn and socialize in daycare centers and schools.
- Food Equality Initiative (FEI): Increases access to nourishing food as medicine for those facing food insecurity - through direct-food service, community collaboration, and advocacy.
