FARE Celebrates Annual Food Allergy Awareness Week
May 14, 2023 (McLean, VA) – FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the nation’s leading non-profit organization engaged in food allergy advocacy, and the largest private funder of food allergy research, kicks off Food Allergy Awareness Week by celebrating our food allergy moms on this very special Mothers’ Day.
There’s no better way to start a week of celebration than to recognize all the mothers in our food allergy community who make sure their kids are safe. Food allergy moms ensure that home-cooked meals are free of specific allergens; that schools are safe zones for their kids in the lunchroom and classrooms; and they advocate for better laws that protect and help the food allergy community, such as allowing greater access to epinephrine. Join us in celebrating all that food allergy moms do on a daily basis by clicking here!
In addition to recognizing our moms, we will be educating, raising awareness and having fun all week. Here are some of the exciting things that we will be doing for this year’s Food Allergy Awareness Week:
- Monday, May 15: Challenge your friends and family to eat Top 9 food allergen free today with some of our delicious recipes.
- Tuesday, May 16: Participate in #TealTakeover to make the world safer for those living with life-threatening food allergies by raising awareness. It starts with knowing that Teal represents food allergy awareness and action. Here’s how you can help!
- Wednesday, May 17: Honor the health care providers who have helped make a difference for the food allergic community, like FARE’s Clinical Network members, on our research-focused day.
- Thursday, May 18: Become a food allergy advocate and learn how you can create change.
- Friday, May 19: Enjoy a full day of content from our Food Allergy Teen community and visit our Teen Corner.
Throughout the week, several well-known buildings and landmarks will be lighting up in teal. A few include: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (5/14); Niagara Falls (5/15); Hard Rock Stadium (5/17); Empire State Building (5/18).
Please join us this week as we work together to raise awareness of food allergies and celebrate all of our champions. For more details, please visit our FAAW page here.
