FARE has a variety of resources designed for specific audiences such as school professionals, health professionals, and restaurant and food industry professionals.
These tools are available to help you in turn teach staff members the essentials behind food allergy management to help individuals safe from reactions. FARE will be adding resources to this section of our website in 2013. Some of the resources found here are published under the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network name. We will be rebranding many of our materials in the coming year.
Additionally, FARE’s Safe@School program, designed to enable school nurses or administrators to conduct in-service training about food allergies and anaphylaxis, is available for purchase from FARE. Please call FARE at (800) 929-4040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on Safe@School, the School Food Allergy Program and other resources.
With approximately 15 million Americans affected by food allergies, restaurants are increasingly likely to have customers who require a special meal. Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) and the National Restaurant Association have partnered to create the first comprehensive, interactive national training program for restaurant personnel to help them become more food allergy aware.
The new ServSafe Allergens™ Online Course will help restaurant personnel better understand the needs and safety precautions required when serving guests with food allergies. FARE has partnered with the National Restaurant Association for this program because it is the leading provider of food safety training to restaurants across the country for nearly 40 years with its ServSafe program.
The training program is designed to educate all restaurant workers – from the hostess in the front of the house, to the manager and executive chef, to the line cook in the back of the house – about the severity of food allergy and the precautions that must be taken. Important topics such as cross-contact are discussed in detail.
Employees who successfully complete the training and knowledge tests, which are taken online, will receive a certificate of achievement demonstrating their knowledge of food allergy issues. This certificate will be carried over with the employee if the employee leaves the establishment for another restaurant.
