FAACT's 'Every Morsel Counts' Poster Contest

All elementary-aged students from kindergarten through sixth grade who have food allergies or are siblings of children with food allergies, are invited to participate in FAACT’s ‘Every Morsel Counts’ Poster Contest in honor of Food Allergy Awareness Month, which is May 2021. This year’s theme is focused on ‘Eating Safely with Food Allergies’ and is based on three strategies for staying safe while enjoying scrumptious, allergen-safe foods;

  • Ask Before Eating
  • Learn How to Read A Label
  • Call a Manufacturer

This contest allows children impacted by food allergies to showcase their creativity, talent, and desire to raise awareness of the importance of safe eating in their community by educating through art.
