HOPKINS, Minn. 10/12/2009 -- 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 7, 9:00-11:00 am, at the Hopkins Eisenhower Community Center at 1001 Highway 7 in Hopkins.
The Resource Fair will feature several 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 participate in art activities facilitated by ArtStart, a Minnesota nonprofit art education organization. An allergist 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.
