CRUMBS!

Allergy Education Gameplay

Regardless of age or culture background, food preferences play an important role in identifying who we are as a person and where we are from.


Unfortunately, it is hard for people from different cultures to express their needs when it comes to food, and not to mention to remember people’s food preferences, or even people’s food allergies.


There are also cases of children facing allergy discrimination or food preference discrimination regardless of their circumstances.
