FARE and Jason McCourty Team Up to Raise Awareness for the Disease of Food Allergies

McLEAN, Va. (May 9, 2024) FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the leading nonprofit organization engaged in food allergy education and advocacy—and the largest provider of charitable support for food allergy research in the U.S.—today announced a new partnership with Super Bowl Champion, broadcaster, philanthropist, and food allergy dad, Jason McCourty. Jason McCourty will join FARE in its efforts to raise awareness of food allergies, a mission that includes amplifying the voices of the more than 33 million people in the U.S. with the disease of food allergies.

Jason McCourty brings a wealth of experience as a strategic philanthropist, having transformed the landscape for those affected by sickle cell disease through the Tackle Sickle Cell Campaign he co-founded with his twin brother, Devin McCourty. McCourty’s dedication to driving positive change aligns with FARE's commitment to improving the lives of those impacted by food allergies.

Sung Poblete, PhD, RN, CEO of FARE highlighted the significance of collaborating with Jason McCourty: "At FARE, it’s personal for us and we are delighted to join forces with Jason McCourty, a dedicated food allergy dad whose passion and commitment to philanthropy are truly inspiring. Together, we will work to elevate the disease of food allergies to a tier-one healthcare issue in the U.S., foster understanding, attract research funding, and create more opportunities to advocate for those affected by food allergies."

The collaboration between FARE and Jason McCourty brings together a shared vision of creating a safer and more inclusive world for individuals managing food allergies and their families—a testament to the power of partnerships in driving meaningful change. Both parties are committed to advancing this mission.

“The disease of food allergies affects my family and, as FARE says, ‘It’s personal for us.’ For me. For my family. And I know that by elevating public awareness of food allergies and raising our voices, together, we can create a world without food allergies. This is an achievable goal that depends on the resources that are dedicated to that mission and I am pleased to lend my platform to this important, very personal issue,” McCourty said.
