FARE’s policy priorities are driven by the food allergy communities’ needs. Our advocates work together in local teams to make change happen in Washington, D.C., and across the country.
FARE's current and ongoing advocacy priorities address some of the most significant and challenging public policy issues facing the food allergy community. They include:
Funding for Additional Research
33 million Americans are living with potentially life-threatening food allergies. There is no cure and limited treatments are available. Funding for additional research is crucial.Learn More
Improving Labeling Laws
Labeling issues are created when manufacturers change how they produce a food—or when a mistake is made. We need labeling laws that are flexible enough to meet the changing needs of the food allergy community. And we need a better system for reporting potential labeling problems.Learn More
Making Air Travel Safer
FARE is calling on every U.S. airline to join us in our effort to keep all Americans safe while flying by following the U.S. Department of Transportation’s order allowing passengers with life-threatening food allergies to preboard airplanes to allow for extra time to clean seating surfaces.Learn More
Improving Access to Food Allergy Treatments
FARE is working to create more treatments and ensure everyone can get them.
Quick access to epinephrine, the first-line treatment for a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction, is critical for individuals managing food allergies.
The food allergy epidemic demands better—and more—treatment options. This means we need more research and a stronger partnership with the federal government.
