McLean, Va. (April 3, 2020) – Today, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the world’s leading food allergy advocacy organization and the largest private funder of food allergy research, announced that Jason Linde will serve as Vice President, Federal Government Relations, a new role for the organization. Linde will lead FARE’s efforts to engage with members of Congress and staff as well as with agencies including FDA, CDC, NIH, and HHS on behalf of the more than 32 million Americans living with potentially life-threatening food allergies.

“I am proud to welcome Jason Linde to the FARE team,” said Lisa Gable, Chief Executive Office of FARE. “In addition to having served as a Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to three members of Congress, Jason was born with food allergies and is also a food allergy parent. He has lived our mission and will play a critical role in the fight for the 32 million Americans living with food allergies in America.”

Linde has more than two decades of association, Hill, and public affairs experience, having held positions with large advocacy and communications firms. He joins FARE following his tenure as the Vice President of Political Affairs for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) where he oversaw the organization’s coalition, grassroots, and political action committee (PAC) efforts.

“I am so excited to join the FARE family and go to work to improve the quality of life for the more than 32 million Americans suffering with potentially life-threatening food allergies today,” said Linde. “I know firsthand the stress and burden of food allergies having lived with them myself and I look forward to playing a role in bringing hope to this community and changing lives for the better.”

Linde’s first day at FARE was February 24 and he was part of the team that successfully held the organization’s first fly-in, Courage at Congress: FARE’s Advocacy Day to Fight Food Allergies, which was held March 2 – 4 and brought 150 food allergy advocates from across the country to participate in more than 100 meetings with legislators on Capitol Hill. Linde has registered to lobby for FARE.
