Food Allergy Awareness Week

Over 32 million Americans have a serious and potentially life-threatening food allergy.  The picture widens to nearly 85 million Americans impacted, when you account for all the people who shop for, cook for, and live with those with severe food allergies, as well as those with food intolerances and avoidances. 

Join us May 9-15 to celebrate Living Teal Food Allergy Awareness Week. We want to invite all of our friends in the food allergy community to learn, love and connect through food, education, advocacy and more.

Food Allergy Awareness Week Proclamations

Each year, elected officials including governors, mayors and city council members across the country make formal proclamations recognizing Food Allergy Awareness Week. They do this in response to requests from people like you! As FARE receives proclamations, the corresponding states on our map will turn teal, the color of food allergy awareness.
