About FARE

Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in 13 children in the United States – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed in 2012 as the result of a merger between the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Initiative.

Our Mission
FARE’s mission is to find a cure for food allergies, and to keep individuals with food allergies safe and included.

We do this by:

    Investing in world-class research that advances treatment and understanding of the disease,
    Providing evidence-based education and resources,
    Undertaking advocacy at all levels of government, and
    Increasing awareness of food allergies as a serious public health issue.

 About SafeFARE Enjoying restaurant meals with friends and family doesn’t have to be off limits just because you have a food allergy. With the right planning and preparation, eating out can still be an enjoyable part of your life.
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) – the nation’s leading organization working on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergy – has created the SafeFARE program to offer tools to both those with food allergies and restaurants to help create a safer dining experience and improve quality of life for those who are managing food allergies.

About Food Allergies
Food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or brushing up on the facts, learning all you can about the disease is the key to staying safe and living well with food allergies.

What is Food Allergy?
The job of the body’s immune system is to identify and destroy germs (such as bacteria or viruses) that make you sick. A food allergy results when the immune system mistakenly targets a harmless food protein – an allergen – as a threat and attacks it.

Unlike other types of food disorders, such as intolerances, food allergies are “IgE mediated.” This means that your immune system produces abnormally large amounts of an antibody called immunoglobulin E — IgE for short. IgE antibodies fight the “enemy” food allergens by releasing histamine and other chemicals, which trigger the symptoms of an allergic reaction.
