Advocacy

One of the primary goals of FEI is to be a voice for food insecure individuals diagnosed with food allergies and Celiac Disease. With a strong commitment to advocacy, FEI is actively raising social consciousness of the issue of special diet hunger. We are working to amend legislative and community based policies that decrease access to safe food.

Policy Priorities

  • Establish best practices for the charitable food system to identify, sort, store, and distribute special diet foods
  • Establish nutrition policies that reflects the needs of food insecure individuals with special diets in school and community settings.
  • Push for legislation that provides Insurance coverage of gluten free and allergy friendly foods for a medically necessary diet.
