Lincoln Elementary School

Food Allergy Awareness

Food Allergy Awareness Committee Objectives

1.  Provide education on food allergies to our Lincoln community.

2.  Reduce bullying of food allergic kids by educating students on the seriousness of food allergies.

3.  Resource for allergy parents or anyone with questions about food allergies.

4.  Resource for PTA members when planning parties or events.  The committee can offer suggestions on foods that are safe based on the allergies present or suggestions on food alternatives.  The principal and school nurse will still continue to approve food at all in school events.

If you have any input for this committee or are interested in helping, please contact Renee Dizillo ( or Heather Smurawski (
