Does your child suffer from a food allergy? If severe food allergies or food intolerance makes your life harder and more isolated, please join this support group. and#8220;Two years ago when my son was diagnosed with severe food allergies to egg, dairy, wheat, and nuts, I came home feeling overwhelmed and alone,and#8221; said founder Loren McCormac. and#8220;We could no longer go out to eat. Parties and barbecues became torture. I wished I had someone who was also going through this to share tips, products, recipes, information and support of any kind. So, I am starting this support group to not only help my son, myself, and hopefully you too! Hope to hear from you!and#8221; No childcare will be provided at meetings.
