Schiller Park, IL (PressExposure) August 10, 2011 -- Enjoy Life Foods, the leading allergen-friendly brand in the Supermarket and Natural Foods stores, has broadened its partnership with the Kids With Food Allergies Foundation, a leading resource site and organization for families who struggle with the everyday challenges of food allergies. By elevating itself to a Gold Level Sponsor, Enjoy Life will support a variety of KFA's initiatives, as well as provide an opportunity for new KFA members to receive valuable coupons for Enjoy Life's products, all of which are free of the 8 common allergens.
With 8% of US children suffering from at least one food allergy (a total of 5.9 million of children under age 18), food allergies continue to be a major issue for a growing number of families. "KFA is a well-known and respected organization in the food allergy community, and it is both an honor and an opportunity for us to be able to support their efforts and endeavors. When faced with a diagnosis of their child's food allergy, parents are often searching for assistance, and we are pleased to be able to help them find the answers they are looking for," said Joel Warady, Chief Marketing Officer of Enjoy Life Foods.
"KFA is thrilled to have the support of Enjoy Life Foods," said Lynda Mitchell, president of the Kids With Food Allergies Foundation. "The Enjoy Life company is dedicated to the food allergy community and we are proud to partner with them in our continuing efforts to provide information and support to families that will keep their children safe and healthy."
