Markdale, ON – Chapman’s Ice Cream is the lead sponsor for Food Allergy Canada’s Back-to-School Campaign. This year’s campaign, running through the month of August, will help Canadians living with food allergies and their families prepare strategies for going back to school and transitioning into self-management.
Food Allergy Canada is a national non-profit charity and the country’s leading patient organization committed to educating, supporting, and advocating for the more than 3 million Canadians impacted by food allergies. They focus on improving daily quality of life by providing education and the support needed to effectively navigate this medical condition, building informed and supportive communities, and acting as the national voice on key patient issues.
This year’s Back-to-School Campaign will feature a webinar for parents on August 24th with leading UK psychologist Dr. Rebecca Knibb, a webinar for youth on August 12th, and Instagram live sessions throughout August. These webinars and sessions are to help youth build skills for navigating food allergy on their own, while also helping their parents with resources on how to support youth throughout this process.
Allergy-friendly products are something that have continued to be important to Chapman’s Ice Cream for over 20 years. Chapman’s was first inspired by a little boy with a peanut allergy who wanted to have ice cream at his birthday party. Chapman’s was the first in Canada to produce ice cream and frozen treats that are guaranteed peanut and nut free.
“We decided that every Canadian should be able to celebrate with a worry-free scoop,” said Chapman’s president, Penny Chapman. “Our team got to work and developed ice cream that could be enjoyed safely,” she continued. That commitment continues today with our variety of peanut free, nut free, and gluten free products.
Chapman’s commitment to allergen safety has been previously recognized by Food Allergy Canada. “We’re always working hard to meet the changing needs of Canadian consumers,” says Chapman. “When it comes to developing delicious and safe nut free ice cream and frozen treats, we’re proud to be an industry leader.”
Chapman’s Ice Cream is Canada’s largest independent ice cream maker, based out of Markdale, Ontario. Established in 1973, Chapman’s currently delivers over 180 of its products to all provinces and territories across Canada.
