Petition Update

Thanks to Sue Stock from the News & Observer for blogging about my food allergy poster petition over the weekend. Click here for her blog entry from Taking Stock.

However, it was a little disheartening to see the comment from ncsulilwolf on her blog post.
They wrote the following...
Why doesn't Becker drum up some donations and volunteers and provide them to restaurants as a public service of his interest group instead of requiring our tax payers to do this? Besides, it might end up quicker on that end if don't wait around for it to become public policy.
I'm guessing this person does not have a food allergy or know what living with or eating out with a food allergy entails. Is eating out safely a right that folks with food allergies have? Maybe we all should just live in a bubble and stop bothering the "normal" people out there. Do you feel our city government should try to make restaurants a little more safe for people with food allergies?

My goals of raising awareness for my "interest group" and helping people have safe meals will continue on despite these comments. So far, about 120 people agree with me.

By the way, click here for the petition.

Unless someone has gone through the angst of trying to eat out, share a card explaining what is acceptable to the server and the chef and then served a dish that would make you sick, they have no idea!
Keep on Zach, you are the best thing that has happened to hundreds of us with CD!
