First Kids WFD Wrap-up

What an amazing afternoon yesterday--our first Worry-Free Dinners event for KIDS!

One aspect, among many, that I value about these Worry-Free Dinners events is that we all come together, virtual strangers, with one thing in common, and leave friends, having laughed, eaten and shared worry-free.


Lovely assistant Ami overhead a mom say to her little one: “Everything on the table is safe for you to eat.”

Her child repeated in wonder: “Everything is safe”.

Wow. It was true and I’m kvelling to be a part of it all.


A heartfelt thank you to the caring staff at Blue Smoke: Lissa, events manager; Nicholas, general manager; Sous Chef Alex; and our server Steve all of whom ensured that this event was delicious and Worry-Free. You guys rocked!

And a thank you too, to all of the WFD members--what a fun party!

Here are some pictures. Our lunch was gluten-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free, fish-free and dairy-free and oh-my-goodness delicious!
