About the FARE College Food Allergy Program

FARE launched the College Food Allergy Program in January 2014 with the goal of developing a comprehensive program to improve the safety and quality of life for college students with food allergies. 

The program offers resources for students and parents, as well as colleges and universities. Those include:

FARE partnered with the Association on Higher Education & Disability (AHEAD), Beyond Celiac (formerly the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness), the National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS), food allergy experts, and stakeholders from colleges and universities to help determine needs, set goals and guide the direction of the program. The research phase of the program began with two college summits bringing together experts from over 65 schools and organizations to discuss a comprehensive best practice guide that would be essential to helping colleges and universities effectively manage food allergy.

In April 2015, FARE chose 12 schools nationwide to participate in the FARE College Food Allergy Pilot Program, later expanding to include 40 schools nationwide. Since the conclusion of the pilot phase, FARE Food Allergy College Search has added 38 more schools, for a total of 78 unique colleges that are part of the FARE College Program. Those schools include:
