Why is Eating Edible committed to making care packages for everyone with celiac disease and food allergies, whether they are our business associates, friends, college students away at school, or kids at summer camp?
Because living with food allergies can make a person feel isolated, particularly when they limit him or her from partaking in events.
Eating Edible is a family business that was established because of our own experience with food allergies.
We started making our care packages for everyone with celiac disease and food allergies because we needed to find gluten-free, tree nut-free, peanut-free, dairy-free, egg-free and wheat-free treats for our son. Fourteen years ago no one knew about wheat-free cookies, gluten-free grains, gluten intolerance, or egg substitutes. Today there is finally one company, Eating Edible, that makes care packages for people with celiac disease and food allergies, and wants to meet the growing need of people with multiple food allergies.
Our child has multiple food allergies that leave him unable to enjoy foods produced for the general population. That can be very isolating and, worse yet, lead to bullying. When he went to summer camp, they had no foods for kids with allergies, like him. Everything he ate had to come from home. At college, the problem was worse. No one was offering easily accessible wheat-free cookies or gluten-free desserts, much less ones that were peanut-free, tree nut-free, egg-free and dairy-free too.
At college, he watched as the students around him received campus gift baskets. The universities and companies market goodies for the general student population but do not make accommodations for students who suffer from celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or the many who have food allergies.
We decided that’s not okay! If you want to send your son or daughter a tasty surprise that’s safe to eat, and delicious, contact Eating Edible! Our care packages for kids with allergies and celiac disease are delivered right to your son or daughter. We send gluten-free care packages to your student or camper – and they’re dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut- free, wheat-free and egg-free too! Our care packages can also be ordered Kosher and/or for most any other dietary restriction as well!
We happily accommodate almost any dietary restriction and will tailor the gift box to your personal needs!
These are the ideal care packages for college students and campers with food allergies! – And they taste great!
“I love getting my mom’s care packages! They make all the difference.
As a gluten free student, life is considerably more difficult. Many times during the day, my friends cram a quick meal in between classes. Unfortunately, for me, a subway sandwich is not an option.
At school the best cure for a bleak week is receiving an email telling me that I have a care package to pick up. I’m always hoping it‘s an Eating Edible gluten free college gift basket! That’s always a great pick-me-up.
Eating Edible’s allergy friendly care packages enable people like me to live a more convenient college lifestyle without constantly worrying about where I can fit in and find my next gluten-free meal.”
