Working for the needs of individuals with food allergies who are experiencing food insecurity

Dear Supporters,

First, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every dollar gifted to Food Equality Initiative goes toward supporting those dealing with food insecurity and diet restrictions due to food allergies, celiac disease, or other diet-related diseases. As a member of the Spokin community, you are likely familiar with the necessity as well as the cost of safe food. Having allergen-free food is a vital necessity for those with diet restrictions, not a luxury.

With the increase of those facing unemployment, FEI has had an increase in those seeking assistance. In less than 21 days, FEI had a 190% increase in clients receiving food. These numbers continue to increase each day. To maintain safety for FEI clients and volunteers, FEI pivoted to a direct-to-client delivery model. Safe foods are boxed and delivered to clients either by Knoq delivery drivers or through USPS.

Can you hear the gratitude, the need, and the hope in their voices?

“I wanted to say thank you to you and the pantry workers for getting me a box together and sending it to me. I was happy to get it because I've been out of SunButter and couldn't find any in our stores down here…so I was happy to get some and the other things as well I just want you all to know that I appreciate it more than you know. Thank you and God bless. I hope that you all are staying safe and well.”

“Can I just say I am so grateful for FEI. The box we received today is such a huge blessing. My girls were so excited to get gluten-free bread and muffin mix and of course snacks! Many of the items in my box are items we rarely purchase or had in house before FEI, because of the expense. Gluten and dairy free items are so expensive. This initiative has truly allowed us to stretch our grocery dollars and stay gluten free. We are so thankful! Thank you for all you do!!!”


“I am like so many other very prideful and it's so hard asking for help. I never thought we would ever be in a spot where our grocery store shelves would be empty and it be so hard to find things we need or that I would be limited to one store to keep my family safe.”

“There's no way that I can go out and just pick up allergy-free foods and the town I live in, the closest town with a Walmart is 7 miles away and we only have a Walmart, a dollar general, and a dollar tree.” ~J.
