Kids with Food Allergies (KFA) works to support public policies that will benefit people with food allergies. Advocacy and public policy work are important for protecting the health and safety of people with food allergies. We advocate for federal and state legislation, as well as regulatory actions that will help you. We are working to make sure you have access to high quality, affordable, and evidence-based care and treatments.
Our Food Allergy Policy Targets
KFA works with key stakeholders to help shape laws and regulation that impact people managing food allergies. Priority issues vary from year to year but fall under the following public policy priorities:
- Promoting equitable access to affordable, quality health care for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of food allergies
- Creating healthy settings for people with food allergies, especially in schools and child care settings, restaurants, and airplanes
- Supporting protective allergen labeling laws and encouraging improved food allergy labeling on menus
- Encouraging federal funding for basic, clinical, preventive, and health services research
KFA is the food allergy division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).
How Can You Get Involved in Food Allergy Advocacy?
Advocacy is speaking out on issues you care about or offering your opinion and suggestions for how to improve something to the people who are in control. It is important for policymakers to hear directly from you about your experiences.
Together, we need to find ways to address the complicated questions and issues related to asthma and allergies. You can take several steps towards advocating for access to affordable quality care right now.
