FAMSOD was founded in 2010 as a a resource in addition to other local support organizations our founder Ms. Word was involved with in Delaware for food allergics. Though our group is based in northern Delaware, we help others in surrounding states and nationwide as needed through advocacy and our Flowers for Anaphylaxis Program.
FAMSOD's mission is to focus on "bridging the gap" in supporting the needs of food allergic/asthmatic adults & children through cultural outreach, taking into consideration that not all people eat the same types of foods as others in their homes. We also hope to include the Eosinophilic Esophagitis community as an add-on component for those affected as it relates to food allergies.
Families all over the globe are affected by this potentially life threatening disorder which is even worse when it is accompanied by asthma. The dymanic of traditional cultural events such as Traditional Weddings, Baby Showers, Bar Mitzvahs, Christenings, Quinceanera's, down to good old American Apple Pie eating and the like are hidden field mines for food allergic familes.
Food allergies affect 15 million Americans. 5.9 million of those affected are children. Food allergies do not discriminate and it is our mission to bring everyone together under the same umbrella for a common cause.
