ABOUT THE FOUNDER

When Sharon’s son, Charlie, landed in hospital after a near-death anaphylactic reaction, the idea for Charlie’s Safe Treat Box was born. As an active participant and contributor in the allergy communities around Australia and the globe, Sharon is on a mission to create a safe place for people living with life threatening food allergies to source treats with freedom and ease.

More about Sharon

Charlie’s Safe Treat Box is a fantastic initiative, it's something that is very much needed.

Mainstream vending machines rarely offer items that are suitable for our allergy children. To be able to have my daughter choose a treat that we know is safe for her would be amazing.
