Washington FEAST (Food Allergy, Eczema, and Asthma Support Team) provides education and support to individuals and caregivers who are affected by life-threatening food allergies and who may also deal with related atopic disorders such as eczema and asthma. We provide outreach to the newly diagnosed and the larger community, building awareness of the severity of these allergies as well as how to prevent allergic reactions and how to respond if reactions occur. When needed, we advocate for change that will improve the lives of food-allergic individuals.
We focus on practical ways of coping with food allergies and anaphylaxis in everyday life. Our meetings frequently include speakers and/or discussions on issues such as shopping and cooking tips, restaurants, family issues, schools and preschools, travel, media, and legislation. Many of our topics are also relevant to those with severe latex allergies.
FEAST is not in the business of providing medical advice. Please consult a qualified medical provider for medical advice pertaining to your own particular situation.
