Will you help us raise visibility for our work by posting a brief story of your experience with us on GreatNonprofits?

It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! No, it’s just dad packing for another long road trip. I have severe food allergies making it too difficult for us to safely fly. We need to improve the safety of air travel and stop airlines from discriminating against people like me with food allergies. All airplanes should have stock epinephrine on board and flight crew need to be trained on how to administer it (and be allowed to administer it).  All airlines should make reasonable food allergy accommodations, such as early boarding to clean seats and try tables and not serving peanuts or tree nuts when requested by food-allergic passengers.
