Our hearts are heavy as Texas, our home-state, has been hit with Hurricane Harvey. We have not been affected personaly by the hurricane, but we know so many that have and wanted to share how YOU can help.
We have placed phone calls to surrounding area hospitals and the San Antonio Food Bank in ways that you can help with Allergen Friendly Donations. We will continue to update as we find out more information.
•As of Thursday, August 31, 2017, the Houston Food Bank has resumed operations. They have indicated that the best way to support their efforts is through monetary donations. If you would like to drop off donations of allergen-friendly products, you may do that curbside at 535 Portwall, Houston, TX now through Saturday, September 9 between 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Saturday/Sunday.
•The San Antonio Food Bank is coordinating food efforts to help ALL of Texas hurricane victims right now. San Antonio is clear and sunny and having no issues with roads closures or mail delays (unlike Houston).

•Folks can donate “MONETARY DONATIONS” and put in the NOTES section (at the bottom) that they want their donation to go to “FOOD ALLERGY FRIENDLY FOODS”.
•Food allergy companies or donors can send “MATERIAL DONATIONS” food allergy products directly to the San Antonio Food Bank (address above) and clearly mark them as FOOD ALLERGY FRIENDLY – If possible, include a clear message that it’s food allergy friendly on the outside of the box, in the second address line, and on the inside of the box.
•Shipments direct from AMAZON: If you are sending allergy-friendly items directly from Amazon.com, you can enter "FOOD ALLERGY FRIENDLY " in the "Address line 2" field for the address and include it in a "gift message" which would be inside the box, to help with package sorting.

Our thoughts are prayers are with Houston and the surrounding areas.
