About SSF

Securing Safe Food (SSF) is a national nonprofit dedicated to fighting food insecurity among individuals with food allergies and improving access to allergen-free foods. Through partnerships, communication, research, and education, we aim to revolutionize food options for under-resourced, allergen-avoidant families by providing nutritionally balanced alternatives. Our vision is a world where individuals with dietary restrictions can enjoy meals without compromising their health, ensuring food security and inclusivity for all.

Serving Food

Food Pantry Program

We stock U.S. food pantries with allergen-free options on a consistent basis for individuals with food allergies, celiac disease, or other dietary conditions. These foods are distributed to pantries committed to separating them for allergen-avoidant households—our education tools ensure specialty food reaches those most in need.
