Allergy Dragon & Allergy Force Talk Food Allergy in the Dragon's Lair
Allergy Dragon (aka Chef Martha Morgan) recently hosted Allergy Force CEO and Co-founder Gayle Rigione in the Allergy Dragon's Lair for a special Mother's Day Episode.
Give a listen to these two innovators, founders, moms — both passionate about making allergic living safer & easier for families with food allergies and other dietary restrictions — as they talk about their allergy mom journeys, mom guilt, and what they'd do differently for their kids with the benefit of their 20:20 hindsight.
Martha Morgan—a Specialty Diet & Allergy Chef—founded Allergy Dragon in 2019 to advocate for Food Allergies and Celiac disease and to help bridge the gap between safe and delicious food. Allergy Dragon has been cooking professionally for almost 30 years. In 2003, she became a reluctant food allergy chef after her youngest's first anaphylactic reaction to strawberries at 9-months of age. (Her youngest is now allergic to over 30 different foods.) In 2009, Martha also became a gluten-free chef after she and two of her children were diagnosed with Celiac disease.
"We are more than the foods we can't eat and we all deserve a delicious seat at the table."

Gayle Rigione co-founded Allergy Force in 2016 to make life safer and easier for the food allergy community through education & technology. As a food allergy parent, she’s lived the heart stopping moments when her son ate the wrong thing, second guessed reactions and raced to the ER. Inspired by her family's 2+ decade food allergy journey, she's passionate about equipping families with knowledge and tech know-how to help them live free with confidence. Every day. During emergencies. In spite of food allergies.
