Project Description

Inspiration through hunger and wanting to travel or even just being able to eat out while out shopping, going to a conference, visiting museums and so much more. So TAB Street was born!

"Burgers, cakes, steaks and of course greens.. are all covered on - check to see if we found something in your city yet... for food allergies, Celiac, gluten free - covers the top allergies for each country" from young to the young at heart, a resource that was started out of a desperation and a want to be able to travel or even simply just being able to eat out. We don't have something for every city just yet, but we need to grow and we need your help to get the listings that meet the criteria!

So what exactly is TAB Street? TAB Street is a website that has listings that have been verified to have allergy free or gluten free information and it has been found that sometimes their is both.  These listings cover restaurants, bakeries,  hotels and more. It takes time and patience to review websites for that  information. TAB Street, at the time of this writing has over 3500 listings which are color coded for allergy information, gluten free  information among other listings that benefit both groups.  
 
TAB Street includes: 
Verified information at time of entry for allergy free information and/or gluten free 
  • Geolocation up to 100 miles for travel at home or on the road
  • With geolocation, directions are within the site for listings 
  • Only listings that have allergy free and/or gluten free information available on website 
  • All types of restaurants - including ice cream shops and bakeries 
  • From pizzas, to hamburgers, cakes and fine dining
  • Celiac Disease and food intolerance resource 
  • Currently over 3400 listings
  • Search by one or multiple allergies, city, category, state and current location radius up to 100 miles or a combination thereof
With a restaurant here and a restaurant there, oh my! It was like  playing a game of choosing which one could handle multiple allergies or  even just one, let alone, would they be willing to change something on  their menu to met those allergy requirements. It becomes easier to stay  at home and stop going out to eat. But, one has to eat out eventually so TAB Street was born.  
So that it might benefit:
  • Not knowing which restaurant works with your particular allergy or multiple allergies 
  • Eating out can't be taken for granted 
  • Sometimes eating out is a necessity 
  • Food allergies - Gluten Free - Celiac Disease - food intolerance's shouldn't mean that you always need to stay local 
The better the information at hand, the better a choice that could be made for all.
 
 
Why is this important?  There are over 15 million people with allergies  and they range in all ages, from young to old. Those 15 million people  have family and friends that don't want to exclude them on eating out  adventures, road trips, and travel.  So, if you just add one person to that 15 million that would mean 30 million and more are aware of listings that work with food allergies and/or gluten free.
 

 

Restaurants are taking notice and making the changes to their website, menus, dedicating kitchen area and training their staff. 
We are branching out to Canada, Australia, and the  United Kingdom.  These sites are open and listings are being entered in slowly.  

Enhancements:

On the table are enhancements that are  scheduled for a later date that we want to try and push up to earlier  dates such as special events and menus, reviews and comments.  The focus  is getting in listings to make the site a more viable site for when you  or someone you love is hungry but can not just go out and eat anywhere.  Being able to allow reviews and comments hasn't been turned on yet  because there isn't the staff for it at the moment.
 
A Feature:
A feature (generated in tabstreet.com) will  allow you to find food allergy and gluten free places along the way that  we want to keep active - showing a road trip from Chicago to Orlando  Florida - hoping to keep alive through funding of the site. Even on the highway while you are traveling down the road it will search up to 100 miles of your location.
 
Your Donation will Help:
Implement the enhancements - food menu, events, and much more, adding resources to continue to help with the research, create jobs with wages (unpaid staff and volunteers currently)  to get listings in quicker, increase marketing, tech and website upgrades

Other ways you can help
Just because you may not be able to donate monetarily doesn't mean that you can't help out! Please feel free to use the share tools on this site as well as old fashion sharing methods  (word of mouth/email) to help spread the word.
 
Chances are if you are reading this far that you too are either affected by food allergies or  know someone close to your heart that is. I am asking that you reach out  to anyone that might find this allergy friendly and gluten free website  useful and perhaps they can help spread the word as well.
 
Anyone, be they young or young at heart with any of these life changing  diseases, food allergies, gluten free and Celiac Disease might appreciate having a new resource, and the people that know them, support them and care for them.
