Walter Stewart’s was proud to sponsor this year’s FARE Walk for Food Allergy. Over 500 individuals from Fairfield County came to Sherwood Island State Park Saturday,September 27, to support Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to food allergy. FARE’s efforts raised $100,000, to fund food allergy research, education, advocacy and awareness initiatives.
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children in the U.S. – or roughly two in every classroom. FARE’s mission is to find a cure for food allergies, and to keep individuals with food allergies safe and included. We do this by investing in world-class research that advances treatment and understanding of the disease, providing evidence-based education and resources, undertaking advocacy at all levels of government and increasing awareness of food allergy as a serious public health issue.
