FARE patch

"My daughter has had food allergies her whole life. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back in terms of all the things she has learned, and we have learned as a family, on how to identify, understand, show respect to, and stay safe with food allergies. Thank you for partnering with FARE!" – Parent, Girl Scouts of Suffolk County

“We’ve had many Girl Scouts complete the patch within the short amount of time it’s been available, but I think what’s most exciting is the response from parents. I’ve heard from many parents that this program has made it so much easier to communicate how to work with their child’s food allergy within their troop setting.” – Staff member, Girl Scouts of Central California South
