Caroline Lorette: inspiration for the school program

Caroline Lorette

This program is inspired by Caroline Lorette of New Brunswick. Caroline passed away in 2014 after accidentally eating something that had one of her allergens in it. Her family is dedicated to promoting allergy awareness and education.

“Please know that by taking part in this program you are not only educating students, but you are also making a more inclusive environment for those with food allergies, helping them feel supported so they can manage more confidently.” — David, Janet, and Katherine Lorette
