“Whether it be an allergy, an intolerance or something else entirely, some of us don’t exactly have an easy ride when it comes to food.
Hi, I’m Meg, and I’m your president! I was recently diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and Lactose Intolerance and it’s really affected my student experience. Struggles with shared kitchens, with adapting to a new diet, and with the mental struggle that came with these diagnoses were difficult, and I’ve felt quite low at times and awkward around others. I want to take what I’ve learned from my own experiences and help others in a similar situation, creating a positive environment that focusses on what we can eat rather than what we can’t. I can’t wait to meet the mew members and I look forward to swapping stories and recipes with you all!
Hey, I’m Cora, I’m your Treasurer. I have found uni challenging to navigate with my allergies, especially on nights out where it’s a lot harder to keep track of drink ingredients and things like that. I find it scary how little provision there is, I want to improve that, and I am super excited to start such a positive society!
This society aims to run SOCIALS in vetted venues, fostering a safe space for our little community. We will be creating RESOURCES such as budget friendly recipe books and lists of trustworthy local dieticians and support services. We will be CAMPAIGNING to improve things for students in shared kitchens and we can’t wait to meet you all and get our community together.”
