Food Allergy Awareness Week


With Food Allergy Awareness Week 2022 just a hop away, #TealTakeover is coming early this year! From May 1 to May 14, FARE is asking you—yes, YOU—to paint your world teal, the color of food allergy awareness. Let's share empathy, education and love as we celebrate our food allergy community!

We’re asking you to participate in #TealTakeover!

Sunday, May 1 - Saturday, May 7: Turning Teal Early!
Sunday, May 8 - Saturday, May 14: #TealTakeover during Food Allergy Awareness Week!

To make the world safer for those living with life-threatening food allergies, we need everyone to be aware and to care. It starts with knowing that Teal represents food allergy awareness and action. YOU can help!

But how...?

You can make a difference by ensuring that everyone feels the teal! Dress in teal for two full weeks so friends and neighbors ask, “What’s the deal with all that teal?” Host a car wash fundraiser (using teal suds and sponges, of course). Share your favorite Top-9-free recipes on TikTok. Post local landmarks that are lit in teal for food allergy awareness. However you choose to reveal your teal, make sure to use the hashtag #TealTakeover so we know you’re out there supporting the food allergy community!
