Virtual Gala 2020

Thank you for your support!

Many thanks to all of you who joined our Virtual Gala & Silent Auction last night. Celebrating the work and impact of our honorees, Jared Saiontz with the Ruth T. Cornell award and Dr. Shahzad Mustafa with the John J. Condemi award was a great honor for us and we're very happy to share it with you.  If you were unable to join us, enjoy the video above. You can also find it on our Youtube channel.

With your help, we're able to continue supporting our allergy community with our two main programs, Epi Near You New York training program and promoting allergy supportive legislation in New York State.  Both programs will continue virtually until we can meet again.

FARE Teal Pumpkin

Let the holiday season begin! Amidst the lovely autumn foliage, both kids and the young at heart are looking forward to Halloween. But if your children have severe food allergies, it can also be a time of concern. This year the Food Allergy Research & Education group is actively promoting the national Teal Pumpkin Project.

By placing a teal pumpkin on your doorstep, it means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions. Simply buy a fake teal pumpkin or paint one, and also try to avoid giving out candy with nuts or milk ingredients.

For more details, please visit www.foodallergy.org. Here’s wishing you a very happy and safe Halloween!
