About FARE

Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in 13 children in the United States – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed in 2012 as the result of a merger between the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Initiative.

Our Mission

FARE’s mission is to find a cure for food allergies, and to keep individuals with food allergies safe and included.


We do this by:

  • Investing in world-class research that advances treatment and understanding of the disease,
  • Providing evidence-based education and resources,
  • Undertaking advocacy at all levels of government, and
  • Increasing awareness of food allergies as a serious public health issue.
