Help & Resources From The Allergy Chef

Curious About The Full Face Respirator?

With more than 200 food allergies and food intolerances, many of which are contact, airborne, and life-threatening, the only way for The Allergy Chef to leave the home safely is to wear a full face respirator.

It’s been part of her life for well over 5 years and in the early days, she faced a lot of discrimination because of it. Yet, she never let that stop her from spreading awareness, showing kindness, and blazing a trail for others who need the same level of safety.
