Going to College #2
Updated: Sep 20
Attention College Bound Students!! Have you heard of the FARE College Food Allergy Program?
FARE started a campaign in 2014 to not only help educate college staff on how to best accommodate children with food allergies, but also compile a database so prospective students can learn how each college plans to handle food allergies.
This new database is expected to be available by late 2016/early 2017.
For more information, visit: http://www.foodallergy.org/collegeprogram
If you’re heading off to college sooner than the database release, reach out to the colleges you’re considering for more information!
Many colleges already have established programs (such as mandatory staff trainings and additional allergen-free dining facilities) to ensure that their students with allergies can have a fun and safe time on campus.
Stay tuned for next week’s post: Allergy-Safe Airlines! More Going to College posts are on the way too!
