Join in With People Everywhere in Supporting National Food Allergy Awareness Month by Going Teal
Roughly 32 million American’s suffer from food allergies that in many cases can be life-threatening. The #tealtakeover challenge is to raise awareness among all age groups of the severity of allergies. FARE is asking people to wear something teal and post it to social media this month to help promote allergy education.

Food allergies greatly impact everyday life for those who have them and their families. They are becoming more and more common affecting not only what people can and can’t eat but their safety in social settings that may have their allergen present. Ariana Grande is one notable food allergy victim as she had an unfortunate run-in with tomatoes this time last year causing her to postpone multiple tour dates.

update: we discovered ….. that ….. i had an unfortunate allergic reaction to tomatoes and my throat pretty much closed. still feels like i’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress! thank u all for your love and understanding. can’t wait to get back to performing and to make it up to Tampa and Orlando in November. p.s. there is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES…….
Whether you have a food allergy or not you can join FARE in celebrating those who suffer from them and wear teal to show your support this May. Use #tealtakeover to band together with millions across America to help spread awareness all month long.
