I will not have access safe restaurants and will not have my own transportation nor familiarity with the area to try to venture away on my own. I am looking for something that I can brown bag to take to eat at the hotel and during the conference. I have Peanut, Tree Nut, Shellfish and… read more

Contact the organizer of the training and inform them of the food allergy. It’s the same as accommodating people with mobility disabilities, etc.

I was invited to a birthday party for a friend's son and she said that she be serving pizza and birthday cake, which means there will be nothing for me to eat since I have allergies to gluten and dairy.

Any tips on navigating the adult social world with food allergies? Such as dinner invites?

Any tips on navigating the adult social world with food allergies? Such as dinner invites?

I'm thinking forward 15+ years to when my daughter and her husband get invited to a friend's house for dinner. How would she accept if she doesn't know them well enough to trust their cooking to be safe? Does she just always offer to host? Bring her own food? Eat before coming over?
