The Indianapolis Indians Presents a Food Allergy Awareness Game 

We have been working closely with the Indianapolis Indians to put together another nut-free game!  We are so excited!  The entire stadium will be thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom.  All products containing nuts (cracker jacks, peanut M&Ms, Snickers, etc.) won’t be sold and guests will be asked to not bring nut containing products into the stadium.  Since it would be hard to 100% guarantee that no one will bring one in, we have decided to call it a Food Allergy Awareness Game.

Food Allergies will be discussed throughout the game – a wonderful way to raise awareness while getting to bring our food allergic kiddos along to enjoy the game.
