I heard that recently, FAAN had an article in its newsletter suggesting a "PAL Table" in the cafeteria to allow allergy conscious friends to sit with their allergic friend at lunch. I think it's a more liberal way of implementing a peanut/nut free table, and may address multiple food allergies.

Has anyone seen this article (probably w/in last couple months)?

If you have it, can I possibly get a copy? I need it very much because our district is trying to restrict nut/peanut-free table only to HOT food...when all the parents are actually comfortable with cold nut-free lunches there and it had been working well. They are concerned that they can't check lunches, and liability -- they have turned it over to "the lawyers".

Thanks Lori Anne! What a great example of the value of this board!!!
I think this article will help w/ our principal and give some ideas about implementing the PAL program.

I would like a copy as well(if possible)...not sure if it will be of use for multiple allergies, but just in case, I'd love to see!!! Thanks [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

If LoriAnne can fax the original it might be better because my fax copy came real light (I could read it, but not sure if it will re-fax).
