The Safe Eats Trunk-or-Treat was a Smashing Success!

What a great time we had on Saturday!

Our three happy winners of Safe Eats prizes were: 

Leah S.

Jessica H. 

Samantha S.



Thank you to our volunteers, the PTA Board President and Members, the school Principal and staff and all of the parents who donated candy and came out to participate for our Trunk or Treat!


We had a blast as we danced to music from our car radio, made kids laugh and smile, handed out coloring books and safe candy – all while spreading awareness and compassion for food allergies.

We had a line that went all around the parking lot!  We are happy to report that all of the candy and coloring books were  dropped in Trick-or-Treater’s bags!



To top off our great event, we were pleased to receive this award for our trunk! What a delightful surprise end to our evening!

Parent upset about school nut ban loses lawsuit.

The fact that this story exists demonstrates such a lack of caring.  It’s but one of many examples of what parents of food allergic children have to deal with. It is so sorely disappointing that it takes a court to mandate protection of a child’s life.  Even worse, that adults are capable of this behavior:

“…some parents sent their kids to school with peanut products and appeared in the cafeteria to prevent enforcement [of the nut ban that was put into place to protect students with life-threatening allergies to peanuts and nuts].”,0,1672724.story
