FARE Recognizes Donor Generosity
May 16, 2023 (McLean, VA) – FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) is the largest private funder of food allergy research due to the incredibly generous individuals who have charitably given of themselves to help us move the needle forward for food allergy research, education, and health equity. FARE could not be the recognized food allergy expert without these individuals’ philanthropic actions.
Philanthropy makes education possible, such as FARE’s Food Allergy Academy, where you can find live and on-demand educational content for the food allergy community as well as the professionals (healthcare providers, registered dieticians and educators) who support them.
Philanthropy makes advocacy possible, such as the legislative win of the Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education & Research (FASTER) Act that became law in 2021 and took effect on Jan. 1, 2023, which requires manufacturers to list sesame as a food allergen if it is present in packaged foods.
Philanthropy makes research possible, such as the FARE Clinical Network, a coalition of top food allergy centers led and coordinated by FARE. These participating institutions collaborate to advance the field of food allergy, ensuring that patients with food allergies have access to state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment, short-term and long-term care, and research that addresses factors from discovery to application.
During Food Allergy Awareness Week, you can make a difference in the lives of the 85 million Americans affected by food allergies, including the 32+ million with life threatening food allergies, by generously supporting FARE.
FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) is the nation’s leading non-profit engaged in food allergy advocacy as well as the largest private funder of food allergy research. FARE’s innovative education, advocacy and research initiatives transform the future of food allergy through new and improved treatments and prevention strategies, effective policies and legislation, and novel approaches to managing the disease.
