FARE College Food Allergy Program Impact

Since the launch of its college program, FARE has made an impact on hundreds of colleges and universities around the country.

"One of the reasons I chose the University of Arizona was because of their participation in the FARE Food Allergy College Program. Awareness was so prevalent on campus, which made me feel safe enough to focus on my studies – not whether I would be able to eat that day. It truly made me feel like I belonged to the Wildcat community like nothing else." Anna Masciola, University of Arizona graduate.
