SPOAK Online Community

SPOAK (Support Parents of Allergic Kids), Support Group of Northern New Jersey

The SPOAK Online Community is open ONLY to SPOAK Members who have joined the SPOAK in-person support group which meets quarterly at the Y in Washington Twp., NJ. SPOAK Online brings our in-person meeting conversations online to our own private community and enables those who missed a meeting to remain informed as we continuously post updates / information, and communicate with our members. Members can ask advice or questions as they share experiences helping others as it relates to food allergies.

If you'd like more information on how to become a SPOAK member, please contact SPOAK at NJFast@gmail.com
