If severe food allergies or food intolerance makes your life harder and more isolated, please join this support group. “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,” said founder Loren McCormac. “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!” No childcare will be provided at meetings.
