Each year in May, Food Allergy Awareness Week takes place to shine a spotlight on this serious public health crisis. Created in 1998 by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now FARE, Food Allergy Awareness Week celebrates the more than 32 million Americans managing food allergies.

Students at Buzz Aldrin Middle School learned about food allergies thanks to a group of their peers who represent the Start with Hello! initiative which is overseen by Student Assistance Counselor Dr. Keith Breiman and Language Arts Teacher Jen Kosuda.

The students created a presentation, which included videos put together and narrated by students that was viewed in each classroom. Start with Hello! is a program that enables students to make a difference with their peers in a simple, fun, and impactful way by encouraging them to take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion, and to identify and help others who are showing signs of social isolation.
