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.

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!
