Spreading Awareness


Teal is the new FAABulous trend! Teal represents the color of food allergy awareness.  Let's increase awareness by getting into the spirit of wearing teal.  Wear teal clothing, eye shadow, jewelry - anything! When you participate, inform FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) and TeenFaab, and we will support your efforts in spreading food allergy awareness. 

Create Awareness through Social Media

Another FAABulous way to create awareness about food allergies is social media. Examples include posting a fact about food allergies, changing your profile picture to something teal, uploading food allergy cover photos, etc. 

Host a Fundraiser

Recently, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) declared May as the official Food Allergy Action Month! This gives you thirty one days to make an impact on the food allergy community. Isn't it great to have a whole month dedicated towards food allergies and food allergy awareness?

Have an Official make a Proclamation

A Proclamation is a public announcement. For Food Allergy Awareness Week, you can have a government official declare the week as a designated time to spread food allergy awareness. Write a letter or send an email!

Get Involved in Your School

There are a variety of ways to increase awareness in your school during Food Allergy week. You can create a presentation for an assembly, set a booth with  information at the cafeteria, go to individual classes, or even educate students about PAL (Protect A Life) by distributing brochures. 

Food Allergy Week is one of the best ways to create awareness.

It was invented in 1998, by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education).  One week is dedicated to educate others about food allergies. Kids, adults, and teens can advocate for people with food allergies whether they have it or not.  Participate in projects,  hang posters, work with your school nurse, be creative and get the word out!


Recently, FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) declared May as the official Food Allergy Action Month! Food Allergy Action Month gives you thirty one days to  make an impact among 15 million Americans.  Isn't it great to have a whole month to be influential and make a positive difference in the lives of so many people afflicted with food allergies?
