To provide children managing food allergies or restrictions with safe, inclusive social events where they and their families can find personal connections and support.
What We Do
We plan and put on food-free social events in the Portland/Vancouver metro area, so kids and teens who manage food allergies or restrictions can fully and safely participate in activities, especially those that usually center around food. We take the focus off the food and put it on the fun, so no one is left out! Kids get to meet and make friends with other children like them and parents and caregivers are provided with opportunities to make face to face connections, support one another and learn something new. We currently host three main food-free events a year but also post information on our calendar and in social media about other events geared toward the food allergy & celiac community, some of which may involve food. (We’ll always let you know if an event is not food-free.)
Coming Up Next
Parents, join us for a free Back To School event on August 19 from 1:30-3:00 pm at Concordia University in Portland. We’ll have a panel discussion of 504 Plans, IHPs, nut-free tables, food in the classroom, and more, as well as a presentation on packing fun, allergy-friendly school lunches.

This event is made possible by a community award from Food Allergy Research and Education.
