Description

BOO to GMO’s: A Trunk or Treat Event- Healthy, Every Witch Way is an event that accommodates (but is not limited to) children with food allergies such as dairy, nuts, gluten and GMO’s. According to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18. That’s 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom. This event is VERY MUCH also for parents who want to forgo traditional Trick-or-Treating with their children and still want to participate in Halloween festivities without the worries of artificial treats (which is how this all started). I hosted this event in 2016, and participated in a similar event the year before that. Last year we had 300-500 people who attended this event!

I am hoping this year will be bigger and better than last year and we will have more sponsors as well. We had 15 major and local sponsors last year! I had many parents personally thank me for creating such an event because their children have such a hard time participating in any event due to allergies or worries of toxic foods. I had one parent tell me that before this event, their little girl (who's allergic to nuts) would cry and get very upset because she couldn’t be a part of what her peers were partaking in on Halloween night. She could dress up, but she could not participate. I want to help these families! I am highly involved in this event because I believe that we need to have choices for our children while still having fun!
