Take the Fear Out of Food Allergies! -- AFAA's mission is Food Allergy Education, Advocacy, & Support at local, state, and national levels.

AFAA makes an impact on lives!

Since spearheading the epinephrine in ambulance law in 2002, "epi" has been used more than 1,500 times on Minnsota ambulances; Students are guaranteed immediate access to epi at all time throughout the school day; Congressional Members understood the need for allergen labeling.

Because of AFAA: Restaurants are promoting awareness through our poster and allergen management training; Kids get to celebrate Halloween safely in the Allergy-Free Zone; Families find support through monthly activities; Professionals and patients learn from experts.

Donations are vital for our work. AFAA is run by dedicated, extremely hard-working volunteers - so your donation goes directly into programming.

Help us create a safer community. Help us Take the Fear Out of Food Allergies!
