Food Allergy Awareness Week
In 1998, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, created Food Allergy Awareness Week to educate others about food allergies, a potentially life-threatening medical condition.
Food Allergy Awareness Week is here! Check out our activities page to see what will be happening throughout the week of May 12-18, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news!
To launch the week, FARE has issued nationwide public service announcements about a growing concern in schools across the country: food allergy bullying. Be sure to view and share the PSA today.
The free resources on this page, such as the downloadable poster and bookmarks below, are available to help you educate others and raise awareness of food allergies. FARE is continuing to support green efforts, therefore all Food Allergy Awareness Week materials are available online.
Has your state issued a proclamation? Each year, dozens of state governors issue an official proclamation recognizing Food Allergy Awareness Week. To ask your governor to issue a proclamation, simply customize this letter and send it to him or her, along with this proclamation template. Most governors have an official website, so you can easily send the letter and template electronically. If you have any problems finding contact information for your Governor, please let us know.
