Each year in May, we commemorate Food Allergy Awareness Week to shine a spotlight on this serious public health crisis.
Food Allergy Awareness Week is focused on raising awareness of food allergies. This year is no different. In fact, it’s even more important given the extra challenges our families are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Food Allergy Awareness Week is May 10-16, 2020 and FARE has committed to driving excitement and engagement by extending before and beyond the traditional weeklong calendar with a series of upcoming, dynamic activities, content and events as part of this year’s programming. We’ll share updates on the game-changing research and innovation that will lead us to an eventual cure, inspirational and informational resources to help navigate every aspect of today’s new normal, and stories from food allergy community that enable the voice of patient to be heard and understood. Each day, we’ll deliver opportunities to learn more, get involved and share the food allergy experience - from personal perspectives and go-to allergen-friendly recipes and meal planning tips to deep dives into food allergy prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
We will update this site regularly with new activities and announcements. Join us as we raise awareness of food allergies!
