MILLBURN, NJ - Four students at Millburn High School announced the formation of a new school club to help bring greater awareness about food sensitivities. The club's inaugural meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 20, in room 176 at 2:45 p.m.
The Food Sensitivities Awareness Club founders are Rayna Katzman, Hallie Katzman, Jessica Daniel and Rebecca Daniel.
According to the founders 5% of the MHS student body and 7% of the faculty follow a gluten-free diet. The goals of the club are to increase awareness of different food sensitivities (gluten, dairy and nuts, etc) and ultimately make some changes in the food available at high school and in township restaurants, to make it safer for people with food sensitivities.
The club is open to all students and are invited to join the Food Sensitivities Awareness Club's Facebook page. So far, they have already garnered the interest of 16 students.
"We will be looking for speakers and support from the community as our club gets underway," said club founder and MHS freshman Hallie Katzman.
