A Whole Foods Market in Philadelphia’s western suburbs is teaming up with a national nonprofit organization of more than 15,000 families raising children with food allergies to host the first “Creating Better Lives Today Family Fun Expo.”
Slated to take place on Sunday, Sept. 13 from noon to 3 p.m., the event at the Whole Foods Market in North Wales, Pa., will provide a one-stop-shop for information about food allergies, including back-to-school tips, new foods and products -- and even entertainment to teach children about food allergies.
The free event will feature activities for youngsters, a special appearance by PBS Kids’ character Arthur, and a live, interactive music performance and puppet show by Kyle Dine, whose original songs educate and empower those living with food allergies. During the performance, children will have the opportunity to participate in a dance-a-thon to benefit the Doylestown, Pa.-based Kids with Food Allergies.
“At Whole Foods Market, we recognize the challenges faced by families living with food allergies, and we are pleased to bring safe and healthy options to the table,” said Danielle Smith, Whole Foods’ marketing specialist and community liaison. “We hope that this event will both increase the understanding and compassion of the community, and also help families by providing awareness of new allergy-aware products and services.”
