Food Allergy Awareness Week – Get Involved!

Posted 4.10.11 | Christine Graham-Garo

Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) is coming up from May 8-14. This is a great opportunity to educate others about the serious nature of food allergies. We encourage everyone to get involved.

Here are some easy ways that you can celebrate and help raise awareness:

At School

Volunteer to give a presentation about food allergies to your child’s class or school. The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) has some great presentations for elementary schools, teenagers and even corporate environments that you can download.

In Your Community

Host an allergy-friendly bake sale to raise money for food allergy research. Or create or print flyers about food allergies and hand them out at your local grocery store or mall food court. If you aren’t already a part of a local advocacy organization, join one! They are likely to be hosting their own events. If there isn’t one in your town, now is the perfect time to start one!


Are you on Facebook or Twitter? Be sure to post about FAAW and if there are any events in your area, invite friends to attend. Don’t forget to follow Neocate too! We will be sharing even more FAAW ideas and stories.

How are you planning on celebrating FAAW this year? We’d love to hear about your plans!
