A Taste of PJ Library: Allergy-Friendly Passover Fun
Time: 3 – 4:30pm
Foods served will be labeled and common allergens will be avoided. Join PJ Library for a fun family event to celebrate Passover and to support Disability Inclusion Awareness in our community. Part of the fun of Passover is eating so many yummy foods, but for those with food allergies, new menus can be a challenge. We will sample and learn how to make different Passover menu items while also learning about food allergies.
