Update on Food Allergy Awareness Week Proclamations

Here's the latest news I received from FAAN:

"An update on Food Allergy Awareness Week proclamations:

As of today, May 3, we’ve received 22:

Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

We’re been informed that 7 more are on the way, yet we still haven’t seen them: California, Delaware, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas."

OK, Nut-Free Mom blog readers, if you're state is on the "not yet" list, visit the FAAN web site and click on Advocacy. You'll be able to contact your governor directly from the site.

May is National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month so now is a great time to contact your state leaders and let them know you want more awareness for food allergies! Good luck and congrats to everyone whose state already has agreed to a proclamation.

I got a response from the office of Gov. Rendell of PA that he has indeed agreed to proclaim next week Natl Food Allergy Awareness Week. Yay!
