Thanks to strong support from community advocates and leaders, FARE is the leading voice to improve the environment for individuals with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. FARE and its volunteer network of advocates is active in issues involving school policies, food labeling, restaurant regulations, emergency services and transportation. 

Advocacy at FARE means working with policymakers at all levels of government on initiatives and laws focused on making the world safer for the food allergy community.  It gives the food allergy community the opportunity to contribute to making that change happen. Advocates are the life-blood of FARE's advocacy program, delivering a message of awareness, access and safety to governmental leaders. 

 

Join us in this session for an update on FARE’s advocacy initiatives over the last year and our look ahead at the coming year.  Learn about when and where you can get involved to make a difference.
