“Too many restaurant employees need a better understanding of how to handle and prepare food for patrons with allergies,” says Jakubiak. “If someone has food allergies, it shouldn’t mean they can only eat at home. In fact, it’s the opposite. Those suffering with allergies need to be eating out to bring more awareness to the issue.”
Allergic Traveler produces dietary allergen cards that help those with food allergies communicate their dietary needs to waiters and chefs, whether it is in Little Italy or in Rome. Cards are available in up to 17 languages, including just English. Wallet-size cards are popular with adults and teens while luggage format are popular with kids.
“Unless we are out there talking about food allergies,” she continued, “people will not see that this is a growing epidemic in North America. We hope our dietary cards will bring a little more comfort to those eating out, whether locally or abroad.”
Allergic Traveler will be a Bronze sponsor for the upcoming FAAN Walks in Long Island, NY and Raleigh, NC. As well, they will be a sponsor for FAAN’s Teen Summit in DC and the Food Allergy Ressource Fair in MN.
