prnewswire - FAIRFIELD, Conn., July 19 2017

 End Allergies Together (E.A.T.), a non-profit organization that funds research to help solve the growing food allergy epidemic, has joined forces with the award-winning ad agency BBDO to develop a public education campaign designed to advise people of all ages about the life-threatening dangers people with food allergies face every time they eat. The PSA, "Could You EAT?," airs online today and begins airing in movie theaters on Friday, July 28. It stars James Beard Award-winning chef Ming Tsai and is dedicated to the memory of Oakley Debbs, an 11-year-old boy who lost his life to nut allergies, as well as everyone who has lost their life to food allergies.

E.A.T. has also launched a text-to-give campaign, in which individuals can text "CURE" to 80077 to donate to research for a cure.
