Advocacy

Food Allergy Issues

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:

The FASTER Act

The Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education & Research (FASTER) Act, H.R. 2117, S. 3451

32 million Americans living with potentially life-threatening food allergies. There is no cure and limited treatments are available. Funding for additional research is crucial. 

The Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education, and Research (FASTER) Act is the first step.

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.

Improving Access to Food Allergy Treatments

FARE is working to create more treatments and ensure everyone can get them.

Access to Epinephrine

Quick access to epinephrine, the first-line treatment for a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction, is critical for individuals managing food allergies.

Increasing Research Funding for 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.

Reducing Regulatory Barriers

Producing more treatments won’t mean much if they aren’t approved for patient use. We’re working with the FDA to streamline this process.

Sesame: A Growing Problem that Demands Better Safety Measures

Sesame allergy is exploding. Laws and regulations aren’t keeping up. We need to do more to ensure the safety of those with sesame allergy.

Courage at Congress Campaign Sign-up

We need your help to hold or schedule 100 meetings with Members of Congress to encourage them to become FASTER Act co-sponsors!
