Food Allergy Awareness Week 2013

fawwthumbFood Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) starts in just two days! Next week, May 12-18, provides the perfect opportunity to educate those in your community about the severity of this potentially life-threatening medical condition. Here are a few events and ways you can get involved!

  1. Educate: Hang up a Food Allergy Awareness Week Poster at your school, library, or workplace. Make a presentation to educate others about food allergies, or share some facts about food allergies on social media.
  2. Participate: We’ll have quite a few opportunities for you to participate in events and help raise awareness online. Make sure you like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter so you can take part!
  3. Show your support: Sign up a team for a FARE Walk for Food Allergy in your area, purchase a Food Allergy Awareness T-shirt, or become a member of FARE to show your support!

We look forward to celebrating FAAW with you, and be sure to stay tuned for a big announcement this week! For more resources and a full calendar of events, visit our website: http://www.foodallergy.org/food-allergy-awareness-week/activities
