Here at Free Cakes for Kids, we take allergens seriously. We never bake with nuts in our cakes, but as our cakes are home-baked we can't guarantee they are nut free. As a volunteer, we want you to have the best information about allergens, and be able to provide our families with allergen information about their cake. We therefore have 3 things for you...
1) Allergen information - a checklist of common allergens for your information
2) 'Information about your cake' form - to use with ALL cakes we provide to list relevant allergens and other 'good to know' information
3) Nut disclaimer form - to use when advised by your Area Organiser in those rare cases where a family has disclosed a nut allergy but still requests a cake. Your Area Organiser will have explained to the family that we don't bake with nuts but the cake can't be guaranteed as nut free; and have explicit consent to still provide a cake. The form is the final part where the family signs to accept the cake. You should keep a copy and send it your Area Organiser.
As a volunteer for Free Cakes for Kids Bristol, we need you to keep up to date with what is going on, whether it be Health and Safety advice or news from the National Coordination Group. Some items are shared with limited access. If this is the case you will be sent an email containing the relevant link.
