Canadian race car driver Alex Tagliani is promoting food allergy awareness and safety this racing season with the launch of The Summer of TAG 2016 campaign. Through this joint initiative, undertaken by Alex and Food Allergy Canada, with the support of Pfizer Canada (Canadian distributor of EpiPen®), Alex hopes to reach Canadians from coast-to-coast.
Join Alex this year as he helps to collect allergy-friendly food items to support local food banks/charitable organizations, while helping to raise awareness of food allergies in our schools and communities across the country. Having food allergies himself, Alex knows the challenges faced by those at risk, especially when it comes to selecting safe food options. Knowing how to read a food label and understanding how to identify allergens and ingredients is key to making informed choices.
