A great way to raise awareness and educate children about food allergies is to donate a book about food allergies to a local school or public library. FARE has named May 18 as “Learning at Libraries Day,” on our Food Allergy Action Month calendar. This day is a time to encourage your local libraries to stock literature for kids about food allergies – you never know who will check out a book and learn about food allergies for years to come!
Here are a few suggested books to purchase and donate to a library. Or buy two copies and keep one for your family to read at home!
When you purchase one of these three titles, a portion of proceeds is donated to FARE! We hope you’ll choose one of these fun and educational books that also give back!
Here are some additional ideas for books to purchase and read or donate to a local library.
If you’re looking for a book to donate that is geared toward teens or adults, consider purchasing one of these reference books:
- “Food Allergies: A Complete Guide for Eating When Your Life Depends On It,” by Dr. Scott Sicherer.
- “Food Allergies for Dummies,” by Dr. Robert Wood.
- “The Food Allergy Experience,” by Dr. Ruchi Gupta.
And remember to start shopping at smile.amazon.com. You can donate a portion of every purchase to FARE when you choose “The Food Allergy Initiative, Inc.” as your charity to support.
