Join FARE May 8-14 to celebrate Living Teal Food Allergy Awareness Week.


They invite all of their friends in the food allergy community to learn, love and connect through food, education, advocacy and more.

A simple statement can be enough to change the way one thinks about food allergies and anaphylaxis. It all starts with education!


Simply copy, paste, and share one fact each day - via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and more!

 

Ask family and friends to participate by sharing your posts on their social media pages. Include FAACT’s website after each fact to encourage viewers to learn more: FoodAllergyAwareness.org, and include FAACT's Twitter handle @FAACTNews and hashtags #FAACT and #foodallergy.
