I discovered my peanut and tree nut allergy when I was two years old, and it has been a huge part of my life ever since. Having severe allergies has prevented me from doing so many things, such as flying on a plane or attending summer camp, but I am privileged enough to have access to foods that are safe for me to eat. I decided to join SSF in my freshman year of high school after taking a class on food insecurity and learning what a problem it was in not just my local area, but all over the United States. The food allergy community that suffers from food insecurity often gets overlooked. I believe SSF is a big help to this population, and I am glad to be a part of the cause.
