Locate a food allergy aware restaurant near you.
Enjoying restaurant meals with friends and family doesn’t have to be off limits just because you have a food allergy. With the right planning and preparation, eating out can still be an enjoyable part of your life.
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) – the nation’s leading organization working on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergy – has created the SafeFARE program to offer tools to both those with food allergies and restaurants to help create a safer dining experience and improve quality of life for those who are managing food allergies.

FARE is proud to partner with two trusted resources, the National Restaurant Association (NRA) and MenuTrinfo, to create a safer dining out experience for individuals and families managing food allergies.
Developed in partnership with FARE, the NRA’s ServSafe™ Allergens Online Course is a comprehensive, interactive training program that educates restaurant personnel – from the hostess in the front of the house, to the manager and executive chef, to the line cook in the back of the house – about the severity of food allergy and the precautions that must be taken.

FARE is also proud to partner with AllergyEats, the leading guide to food allergy aware restaurant reviews. Restaurants listed in the SafeFARE database are encouraged to include a link to their AllergyEats profiles so users can read more about their commitment to serving diners with food allergies.
