The need for our services has increased beyond our funds to serve new client requests and referrals.

End hunger and improve health nationwide by donating today!

What would you do if your only source of affordable food – food that your family can safely eat -- suddenly disappeared?

It’s a shocking question – but one that children and adults who are food insecure and also have multiple food allergies or celiac disease may have to answer.

Children and adults who must stick to a diet of allergen and/or gluten-free food to treat their health conditions and maintain their health are faced with sticker shock after their diagnosis. Food bills can jump from 200-1000% for many grocery staples like milk, bread, eggs, and pasta.


One FEI client said her family's 2-week grocery budget was gone in 3 days.


Since 2014, Food Equality Initiative has bridged that gap, providing access to allergen and gluten-free foods for families in need. But that may have to stop.


In 2021, requests for assistance jumped 150%. But, donations are down 41%.


Unless we raise $160,000 by the end of the year, FEI can NO LONGER say YES. Not only have we had to say NO to new clients, but we may be forced to limit what we send existing clients.

You can change that.

Your generosity will mean an individual will receive the healthy, free-from food they need for:

FREE-FROM: A food that is safe for an individual with food allergies and/or celiac disease.
This is personalized for each individual’s needs.

Your gift will ensure that FEI continues to send free-from food every month to low-income families. Your gift means that FEI can say YES when doctors call us about new clients.
