Join the College Program

Interdepartmental Partnership

Partner with FARE to create an interdepartmental system for managing food allergies on campus. This will be a university-driven program, with university representatives making decisions about areas of focus. A FARE staff member will work with dining services and disability services to provide training, help evaluate current systems to identify areas of strength and areas for improvement, and serve as a go-to resource for questions, review and feedback.

Optional component: FARE will also offer access to resident advisor training, and support for housing and/or health services if desired.

Training options include AllerTrain U, AllerTrain Lite and AllerTrain RA.

If your college or university is interested in participating in this program or learning more, please email collegeprogram@foodallergy.org or call 1-800-929-4040.

FARE College Search:

FARE is launching a tool to help colleges and universities communicate about their efforts in food allergies to prospective students and parents. To be included in the search tool, schools must complete a self-audit and a survey.

Schools that complete the self-audit and survey by February 13, 2017 will be included in the beta launch of the tool and be eligible to receive up to $1,000 in free training. Training options include AllerTrain U and AllerTrain Lite.

FARE Matching Funds Program:

Colleges and universities participating in the interdepartmental program may apply for up to $10,000 in FARE matching funds for projects on their campus. Project proposals may include anything from setting up allergy-friendly areas on campus to funding awareness events or materials, but should ultimately benefit students with food allergies enrolled at the campus completing the application.

Applications are accepted and approved on a rolling basis, so early submission is encouraged. See the application here for additional award criteria.
