Dear ________,

I’m writing to let you know about Food Allergy Research & Education's (FARE) newly redesigned online training course designed to help school staff and administrators become better prepared to manage students with food allergies and respond to food allergy emergencies.

Today, one in 13 children has food allergies, or roughly two in every classroom. Just 30 years ago, food allergies weren’t even on the radar, but now the numbers are climbing.

In response to this emerging epidemic, FARE, the leading national organization dedicated to food allergy research, education, advocacy, and awareness, developed Keeping Students Safe and Included, an evidence-based training resource that aligns with the CDC’s Voluntary Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies in Schools and Early Care and Education Programs, to help school personnel learn how to create an environment where students with food allergies are safe and included. 

You may access the free training course by visiting foodallergy.org/k12

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about managing food allergies in schools and how to best protect and keep students included.  

 

Sincerely,
