FAST (Food Allergy Support Team) of Texas is a newly formed food allergy support and awareness group based in North Texas. FAST currently has 5 local chapters: Dallas, Austin, Collin County, Grapevine/Flower Mound and Ft. Worth. Anyone in Houston, San Antonio and other Texas cities want to merge their support groups with ours? Or perhaps you'd like to lead a chapter in your city? Either way, we'd love to have you. Please e-mail [email]austinfoodallergy@yahoogroups.com[/email] for more information. Thanks!

Hi!
We are moving to San Antonio this summer. I would love to either help start a group or join one if one exists!

Hi, I recently found out my 18 month old son has a severe peanut allergy. I am currently on a travel assignment in Austin, but will be moving back home to Corpus Christi to be closer to family to help with my son. Are there any support groups in that area? Thanks, Hillary
