Deactivation of Feeding Matters Forum

Published on October 05, 2016

At Feeding Matters, we understand the need for families to be supported in their journey with pediatric feeding disorder. In fact, family support is one of the cornerstones on which Feeding Matters was founded 10-years ago.

To expand Feeding Matters’ ability to help families quickly and efficiently, we have switched from supporting a forum on our website to fulfilling this aspect of family support through our Facebook page. This will ensure parents, caregivers, and healthcare professionals can get their pressing questions and concerns answered as quickly as possible.

You can post your questions to the Feeding Matters Facebook page, or send us a message directly. Our goal is for you to have a response to your questions and concerns within one business day, with the understanding that this might not always be possible during high traffic times.

Feel free to contact if you have any questions about this process.

Thank You Luncheon Volunteers

Published on October 04, 2016

Feeding Matters would like to extend a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers at the 4th Annual Community Luncheon on September 28, 2016! We were lucky to have volunteers from CopperPoint Insurance Companies, CVS, Mercer Health and Benefits, LLC, as well as parents of children with pediatric feeding disorder and other friends of Feeding Matters.  Without you, our event would not have gone as smoothly as it did. We truly appreciate all you did to help, including prep work before hand, registration, welcoming guests, and cleaning up afterwards!
