The first step in the College Food Allergy Program was a College Summit held at Virginia Tech from January 16-17, 2014. This summit brought together representatives from 30 colleges, as well as other experts and stakeholders to discuss best practices in dining services. The second College Summit was held at the University of Arizona from April 11-13, 2014 and will bring together additional representatives from over 30 colleges. The second summit expanded the conversation to include major food services contractors, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, the Arizona Food Allergy Alliance, parents and students, as well as representatives from college health services, resident services and disability services. The goal of this summit is to create comprehensive best practices for identifying and serving the needs of students with food allergies in every aspect of student life.
