Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in 13 children in the United States – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed in 2012 as the result of a merger between the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Initiative.
FARE’s mission is to ensure the safety and inclusion of individuals with food allergies while relentlessly seeking a cure.
They Help by:
- Providing evidence-based education and resources,
- Undertaking advocacy at all levels of government,
- Increasing awareness of food allergies as a serious public health issue, and
- Funding world-class research that advances treatment and understanding of the disease.
