No ifs, ands, or NUTS!

There is nothing like a college football game…The fun!!  The excitement!!  The peanuts??  Oh, about that…

People with severe peanut allergies are often restricted from attending sporting events because of the abundance of peanuts at most venues.    

On Saturday, October 16, 2013, Northwestern University made history as it hosted University of Minnesota in a college football game. This monumental day wasn’t because of the score, but what was happening in the stands. This was the first time a university promoted a “peanut-free” athletic event to accommodate people with peanut and tree nut allergies. Peanut products were removed from the concession areas and fans were prohibited from bringing peanuts into the facilities.

Thank you NU for raising public awareness about peanut allergies!!

Keep out of the nut house!!
