Easter 2020 is going to be like no other! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine, we are going to have to be resourceful and get creative. It can be done! Just remember this: if Easter or Passover look a little -or a lot- different this year, that's okay! Think outside of last year's Easter basket for new takes on old traditions, or make new ones entirely (or even just for this year, let's call them "Traditions-In-Place" maybe?).

Neither rain, nor more rain, stopped us from having a TEALly good time at this year's Teal Pumpkin Trunk-or-Treat! Families from 3 states braved the rain to safely enjoy this fun, food-free holiday.

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me how to "do the Teal Pumpkin Project", I would be rich! I am excited to share with you how easy and affordable it is to include ALL children on Halloween. Join the Food Allergy Alliance of the Mid-South in turning the Mid-South teal this Halloween!
For a second year, FAAM hosted a "camp" for the children in our food allergy community, their siblings and parents. Food allergy is a family-managed diagnosis so we want families to have fun together, learn together and support each other.
FAAM's 2nd Annual Virtual 5K for Food Allergy Awareness in the Mid-South was a hit! Thank you to our participants from 6 states for believing in our mission of providing food allergy support, education, advocacy and fellowship in the Mid-South! Your support will help our volunteers continue to serve our local food allergy community in many ways. Your kindness has humbled our hearts and put some real wind in our sails to press on through 2019.
Food for Thought is the blog for the Food Allergy Alliance of the MidSouth. FAAM's mission is to provide food allergy support, education, advocacy, fellowship & fun for Memphis, TN and surrounding areas.
