Due to the availability of all kinds of foods, a lot of people can easily take it for granted. But for Barbara Kowalcyk whose young son Kevin, died of E.Coli 0157:H7 poisoning, everyone should endeavor to ensure that what they eat is safe (and healthy).

Since the health department was not proactive in helping Barbara and her family understand the cause of her son’s food poisoning, they took up to themselves the task of making more people aware of its risks. In 2006, she and her family founded The Center for Foodborne Illness Research & Prevention (CFI) which aims to educate people on how food should be kept safe and to prevent other families from suffering the same fate as their beloved Kevin.
