Food Allergy Awareness Week

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Food Allergy Awareness Week provides a unique opportunity to help raise awareness of food allergies and anaphylaxis. Each of us works in our own way to raise awareness of food allergies and anaphylaxis. When we all work together and focus our efforts over the course of one week, it amplifies our message and reaches many more people than any one of us could do alone.

Thanks to your energy and dedication, this event continues to grow each year, increasing the reach of our public awareness and education efforts. There are many ways you can get involved this year.

FARE offers many tools and resources to help you educate yourself and others about food allergies. From your local community to Capitol Hill, information and awareness are keys to making a difference.

Food Allergy Awareness Week has been observed the second full week of May since 2003.

Food Safety Education Month (National)

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

September was National Food Safety Education Month. It provided an opportunity to raise awareness about steps you can take to prevent food poisoning.

Every year, an estimated 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die from eating contaminated food. Some people are more likely to get a foodborne illness (also called food poisoning) or to get seriously ill.

Join us in sharing information about which groups of people are more likely to get food poisoning and what steps they or their caregivers can take to help prevent it.

World Food Day

FAO celebrates World Food Day each year on 16th of October to commemorate the founding of the Organization in 1945. Events are organized in over 130 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. These events promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.

World Food Day is a chance to show our commitment to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 – to achieve #ZeroHunger by 2030.
