'FAACTs for Schools' Program
FAACT is proud to offer FAACTs for Schools - a comprehensive program to raise awareness of food allergies in schools. This free program fulfills our mission to educate, advocate, and raise awareness for all individuals and families affected by food allergies and life-threatening anaphylaxis.
Food allergies affect approximately 1 in 13 children – about 2 children per classroom. With so many students affected, it is crucial for educators to build an awareness of the seriousness of food allergy among all their students. FAACTs for Schools brings a complete educational program directly to schools. Our educational presentation, Get the FAACTs About Food Allergies contains an overview of food allergies including current best practices based on the Centers for Disease Control’s “Voluntary Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies in Schools”. With a pretest, post evaluation and complete talking points, this presentation can be used by parents or educators to educate school personnel nationwide. Also included in our completely free package are convenient handouts such as FAACT’s 10 FAACTs about Food Allergies.
We sincerely hope that educators and students will enjoy learning about food allergies with FAACT! By completing a short form on our Web site, this FREE program can be downloaded instantly.
