     The Food Allergy Association of Wisconsin, Central Wisconsin Chapter was first
     established in September 2006 under the name Wausau Area Food Allergy Support
    Team (WAFAST). In 2009, we officially became a chapter of the Food Allergy
  Association of Wisconsin. Our mission is to connect families and adults living with
food allergies in central Wisconsin. FAAW-CWC seeks to realize this mission through
awareness raising, training and support. We are operated entirely by volunteers.
