Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) is next week, May 11th through the 17th! Mark your calendars and make a plan to engage, educate, support, and share just a little bit more. I just wanted to get a quick and straightforward post out there to help give you ideas and resources on ways you can participate next week. You can spend as much or as little time getting involved as you want, but everyone can do something. Push yourself to see how far your efforts can reach! 

You can read about what my plans are in my guest blog post for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT) and check out how I participated last year for even more ideas. 

You should also absolutely visit FAACT's and FARE's websites for more information on FAAW. Both organizations have put together incredible ideas and resources to help you raise awareness. FARE also recently declared May as Food Allergy Action Month and has even provided an awesome Action Month Calendar to help you get involved. You can also check out their newly released infographic below to learn more about food allergies.
