We know how hard it is to live with food allergies 24-7. Often, parents and their children feel overwhelmed and alone. That’s why we started MOCHA here in Illinois: to create a local community of families who could share challenges and triumphs, so that both parents and their food allergic children could experience fellowship and camaraderie whenever they chose to connect.

The FASE program at Lurie Children’s Hospital hosts monthly Essentials of Food Allergy Workshops as well as topic-based workshops on issues such as back-to-school, traveling, parental anxiety, holiday preparation, current food allergy research and more. They also host Kids’ Food Allergy Hangouts for patients and friends of Lurie Children’s that give children with food allergies opportunities to be with other children who share their experiences. The FASE program is led by Sarah Boudreau-Romano, MD, allergist, and food allergy mom. To sign up for the workshops or the hangouts, please register here.
We recommend using the Spokin App for food allergy approved foods, travel destinations, and more!
