There are so many exciting things happening to help make the world of food allergies less scary and more manageable. Last week I shared about a new phone app called AllertMe. This week, it’s iMenus!
Eating away from home can be a terrifying experience if you have a food allergy. With the lack of allergy-friendly reviews and trustworthy restaurants around, it’s nearly impossible to relax when eating out or ordering takeout.
How can you trust that a restaurant manager has trained his entire staff on cross contamination? Would you simply take his word for it and risk it? Probably not!
Our friends at iMenus completely understand this frustration, so they’re creating an app that will finally give you some peace of mind. With the iMenus app, you will:
- Finally be able to order food that’s free of your specific allergens from local restaurants. Menu item ingredients will be gathered from trusted nutritional databases and cross-referenced with the restaurant’s ingredient data.
- Have access to a comprehensive rating system based on verified restaurant food allergy safety training, restaurant audits, and food allergy community reviews.
- Support food allergy research just by ordering. Up to 25 cents of each iMenus order will be donated to FARE. The donation comes from the fees restaurants pay on each order — not from your wallet.
- Connect with an active community that’s working hard to advocate for allergy-friendly dining and food allergy awareness.
Today, iMenus is launching their crowdfunding campaign that will help them finish their app by this summer. Pledges start at $10 and every amount will directly impact the development of this revolutionary tool for the food allergy community. Better yet, if you back the app at $25 or higher, you’ll get EARLY ACCESS!
To help them reach their funding goals and raise awareness of allergy-friendly dining, they’re throwing a social media flash mob TODAY at 2pm CST. Please help iMenus finish their app and get the word out to the rest of the food allergy community!
Join me in helping to get this incredible app off the ground and into pockets everywhere!
