We were honored and thrilled this week to accept the Official 2019 Colorado Proclamation of Food Allergy Awareness Week from Governor Jared Polis!
We have requested proclamations from the state of Colorado for five years now, but this is the first time we’ve actually received one. In 2015 and 2016, then-Governor John Hickenlooper declared Food Allergy Week, but the official proclamation went to a different Colorado organization. Then in 2017 and 2018, Colorado didn’t recognize Food Allergy Week at all, and we don’t know why. We were so excited this year to receive our first official proclamation!
