Three Days of Interactive Sessions

Leaders in food service will share their first-hand experiences and creative solutions to foster a culture of food safety and ensure that individuals with food allergies can dine safely outside their home with their families and friends. Full agenda coming soon. Agenda is subject to change.
Let's Start With Why This Matters…
Food allergies affect 32 million Americans and expands to 85 million if we include others living in the same household. Let's kick off this conference by hearing about why food allergy safety in food service operations matters.
Embrace a Strong Culture of Food Safety
Things get hectic in both front and back of the house. We all have a culture of food safety – but some food safety cultures adapt to change more quickly than others. In this session, participants will learn tips and tricks to encourage your staff to embrace food safety measures for individuals with food allergies. This is an interactive session where multiple examples will be shared. Participants should prepare for interactive communications during the session. After the session, participants can apply knowledge to home settings, restaurant settings, and any other situation where food is served.
Navigating the Hospitality Industry With Multiple Lenses
Join two hospitality and tourism experts in exploring food allergy safety and accommodations in hotels. Learn best practices in how to reduce risk and increase safety so that individuals with food allergies can enjoy their travel destination.
Navigating College With Food Allergies: A Qualitative Study With Practical Implications for Higher Education
While attending college presents a confluence of known risk factors for adolescents and young adults, little is known about the day to day experiences of college students with food allergy. We conducted in-depth qualitative interviews to explore the impact of food allergies on the daily lives of young adults who recently transitioned to attending college away from their childhood homes. With these findings in mind, we discuss the practical implications of our work for accommodative services in higher education.
Food Allergy Solutions Beyond the Dining Hall
While the dining hall might be the go-to place for meals, college students are enjoying meals and snacks all over campus and beyond. Let’s explore how to keep students safe during events and extracurriculars on and off campus.
Opening Doors: Creating a New Opportunity to Reach Students with Food Allergies
Providing multiple layers of communication and support for students with food allergies is important. We realize that we can't (although we would like to) personally interact with all students or community members with food allergies that dine with us. For this reason, among others, we created the "Ask Me" Allergen Program which provides real-time access to a highly trained employee with whom students can communicate and ask questions/make requests. We will detail the creation, implementation and plans for expanding the program.
Decoding the Food Code: What Does This Mean for Food Allergens?
The 2017 FDA Food Code sets the precedent for all things food safety in retail food establishments. In this session, you will learn from a health inspector answers to: how and why these regulations are established and updated? Why does every city have different regulations? What does the Food Code say about food allergens and your establishment? Are there upcoming food allergen regulations my establishment should be aware of?
How Financial Restraints Can Drive Creativity in Food Allergy Safety
Join a panel discussion highlighting creative solutions to ensure food allergy safety when budgets are restricted.
Get Proactive About Emergency Planning and Food Allergies
The top focus in food service? Safety. Knife safety, food safety, the safety of staff, and the safety of those we serve. Safety is an even bigger concern when we serve people who have life-threatening food allergies. Throw an unexpected emergency into the mix? It can get a little dicey. As food service professionals it's important for us to have emergency plans in place that include people with food allergies. Join us as we get proactive and think through emergency planning with food allergies in mind!
