Join FARE to revolutionize food service training and keep kids with food allergies safe by supporting FARECheck Instructor Training (FIT).
All children deserve to feel safe at school, but for the one in 13 children in the United States who have life-threatening food allergies, meal times can be full of stress. From pre-k all the way through college, having a well-trained food service staff is critical for keeping these students safe when they eat.
Currently, many institutions are forced to make difficult decisions about who to train in food allergy protocols due to many variables including the cost of training, the availability of on-site computers to conduct training on or the need for staff to travel to attend training sessions. These obstacles result in undertrained teams that could lead to dangerous situations for students with food allergies.
FIT is solving these issues by providing a cost-effective and flexible way for schools to train every member of their food service staff using an evidence-backed, FARE-approved food allergy course. One member of the team will be educated on both the content and how to be an effective trainer – allowing them to provide ongoing, in person training to their entire team.
Your support of FIT will help ensure that students of all ages are able to eat at school safely and without fear.
