PAK will continue to host larger educational events and continue to work on advocacy and community outreach. Are you interested in hosting a chit chat support session or playgroup in your community? We will encourage and support any of you hosting get togethers in your part of town. Here’s how you can help…

Simply set a date, time, and place. Perhaps start with a park playgroup or a chit chat at the library.
Strive for non-food events so that they are inclusive and accessible to our food allergic members.
Keep an eye on the PAK calendar above to make sure there are no overlapping of events. Let the PAK coordinators know, so we can create an event on Facebook and add it to our blog/website. We will be happy to send out reminders and spread the word!
Libraries can host meetings easily just by signing up online. The Union & Iredell, York, SC libraries can host for free! Charlotte Meck costs 20$ and PAK can reimburse…
