I was pondering how to talk about our new allergen-free food initiative, when this email dinged in my Inbox.
This happy mom says it much better than I could:
I just read online in The Courier about your new offering of allergy free food. Thank you SO much for doing this. I have a 3-year-old son who has allergies to wheat, egg, milk, barley and nuts, so it is always hard to find things he can eat. I always feel bad when we go to places and he can't eat what others are having. We are from Evansville originally, but live in the Chicago area now. We always like to come back for visits and come to your park, and this will make it even better when we come later this summer. I also appreciate that you all have taken care to make sure there is designated equipment for preparing the food. Many people don't realize that reactions can occur just from coming into contact with the food on their skin.
Thank you again. You are all wonderful.
Happy Food Allergy Awareness Week!
