15 Easy Ways to Make a Difference and Raise Food Allergy Awareness

May 10-16 is Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW)! While we know that the realities of living with food allergies are 24/7 year-round, this time of year always presents a special opportunity to educate others.


Spread Awareness with Faces of Food Allergies Photo-Sharing Campaign

One in 13 U.S. children has a food allergy. Is your child one of them? Help us spread awareness by sharing photos of your children. KFA started the Faces of Food Allergies campaign back in 2010 to show children that they are not alone and that there are a lot of kids, like them, enjoying life and doing all they can to stay safe and healthy. On each day of FAAW, we will be selecting one winner to receive a prize valued at $100! Prizes will be provided by Daiya, Dr. Lucy, Sweet Alexis,  Namaste Foods, Skinny Pop, Skips Candy  and Surf Sweets.
