    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    The SuperBowl and Food Allergies
    AllerDine posted:
    Is anyone in our community going to order food in or are we all destined to spend 5 hours tomorrow in the kitchen preparing our own safe options?

    I always preach "Whatever you do tomorrow for the Super Bowl, please make sure that let your host know about your food allergies. Don't risk it if you are uncertain and always bring backup food", but wonder if there are more families that do order in and from where?

    Take the Poll

    If you have a family member with food allergies, what are your plans for the big game tomorrow?
    • Staying home - eating our own food
    • Staying home - ordering in
    • Going to a friends - bringing our own safe food
    • Going to a friends - eating their food or take out food
    • None of the above
