Food Allergy Action Month


Anaphylaxis Stories  |  Downloads  |  Events

Every May, FARE hosts a nationwide Food Allergy Awareness Week to shine a spotlight on the seriousness of food allergies and to improve public understanding of this potentially life-threatening medical condition. By increasing awareness, we can encourage respect, promote safety, and improve the quality of life of the 15 million Americans affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.

Created in 1998 by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, this year’s Food Allergy Awareness Week will be held on May 14-20, 2017. Additionally, we will have activities and ways to get involved throughout the entire month of May for Food Allergy Action Month
