Making Peace With Food Allergies

With the start of a new school year comes the question “Can we send a peanut butter sandwich for lunch?”  Seems like a simple question, but once it’s asked, I am reminded that parents in our community are struggling with this challenge daily.  So I am asking folks to take a step back and support our schools as they try their best to provide all students with a safe environment.

Ask yourself, does someone I know suffer from serious food allergies?  For me, it is my dearest friend, who is raising two children with a variety of allergies.  She is an   amazing woman, mom, wife and best friend.   And she knows way too much about this topic!  So I am super proud of her, as she has decided to educate and share what she has learned over the past 15 years.

If you, your family, friends, etc. have been diagnosed with food allergies and need support, check out her latest website, Making Peace With Food Allergies.  And for a true understanding of how you can support someone who is dealing with food allergies, read Stacey’s Blog for a lovely post filled with valuable insight.

I love that I have the opportunity to share this with my community, please feel free to pass it along to others and thanks for reading!

Get Your Solar On! Introducing Solarize South Carolina

I was fortunate to chat with Jim Kubu, the Community Outreach Manager for Solarize South Carolina, Low-Country Region.  I found his program very interesting and thought I would pass along the info….
