Get Involved

Created in 1998, Food Allergy Awareness Week is honored each May to shine a light on the seriousness of food allergies.

There are so many ways to shine a light on food allergies during the month of May. Here are some ways to get started raising awareness and inspiring action in your community during Food Allergy Awareness Week.

  • Start a team for your local FARE’s Food Allergy Heroes Walk and invite your friends.
  • Contact your local media outlets to pitch a story about food allergies. 
  • Request that your state governor or local official make a proclamation recognizing Food Allergy Awareness Week in 2018.
  • Show your spirit with #TealTakeover. Whatever way you choose to rock your teal, you’ll be helping to show the unity and size of the food allergy community. Find a variety of teal gear on FARE's Online Store where proceeds from each purchase fund food allergy research.

It helps to know you’re not alone when it comes to food allergies. Caregivers, co-workers, friends, teachers and your partners are a critical part of your support system, but they may not know how to help. Here are some basic principles and tips to share!
