Get Creative to Celebrate Easter and Passover

Easter and Passover may be different this year due to the coronavirus. But we have resources to help you make the holidays fun for your kids while you're at home.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for People With Asthma and Allergies

As the coronavirus increasingly impacts the U.S., you may wonder what that means for families managing food allergies, asthma and other allergic conditions. Here are some educational resources and tips to help you and your family stay healthy.

We are here to help you manage food allergies during the coronavirus crisis, and you can support others too. Your gift helps a parent connect with other parents managing food allergies. You help us advocate for better protections for people with food allergies. And you help a caregiver save a child's life through educational information. Please consider supporting KFA. You can be part of our mission that makes a difference in the lives of families raising children with food allergies.
