Food allergy education, advocacy, and support

Join Us


We would love for you to join us!  FASGOT includes families with children of all ages who are coping with food allergies. Medical providers, school nurses, teachers, dietitians, and other professionals are also an integral part of the group. We maintain an open invitation to anyone interested in receiving or sharing information on managing food allergies.  No matter your circumstance – newly diagnosed, “veteran” of food allergies, caregiver or a professional working with children who have food allergies – the most important thing that you will bring away from this group is the relief of knowing that you are not alone!

All of our events and meetings are FREE in order to provide support and information for all those who need it, without placing any financial burden on families already struggling to meet the needs of their food-allergic children.  We do welcome donations to help with the cost of hosting expert guest speakers, supplying brochures and flyers, maintaining books for our resource library, and meeting refreshments.


Group Meeting Dates…

Stay tuned to this page for more dates, appearing soon.  In the meantime, Find us on Facebook “Food Allergy Support Group of Tidewater” for updates & other group event info.
