Most of you know that May is the official month of food allergy awareness and even though most of us probably feel pretty secure and (feel) that we have a bunch of allergy knowledge, I wanted to share some trusted resources to make sure you that you KNOW you are filled to the brim with more of that knowledge. In fact, you might have short-term A.A.O. (allergy awareness overload). As I always say, it's better to have too much information than not enough. Here is just a tiny fraction of some of the wonderful ways to enjoy May, get your information geek on, support, shop and even win great goodies.
