Hi. I’m Jack Yonover, now an 8th grader at Wilmette Junior High School. When I was eleven years old, I had the idea to make a documentary about the fears and frustrations of food allergies, and in March 2014, I launched a Kickstarter campaign. My project was fully funded within 48 hours, and I ended up raising almost twice what I hoped to raise for the project. The support and encouragement my backers have given me was even more valuable than the monetary contributions.
The goal with my feature length documentary entitled: “That Bites!” is to raise awareness about food allergies, and also raise money for this important cause.
