NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - To raise awareness for food allergies, several Mahopac families raised money by walking in the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Walk on Saturday, Oct. 10.

FARE is a national nonprofit organization aimed at improving the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hope through the promise of new treatments. 

Families from the Mahopac/Carmel area that participated included: the Baker family, the Chin family, the Longo family, the Tuz family, the DeCola family, the Nolan family, the Keller family, the Pereira family, the Teahan family and the Eppolito family.

The number of children with food allergies in the U.S. increased 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, according to FARE. Food allergies affect up to 15 million Americans, including one in every 13 U.S. children—roughly two in every classroom. Nearly 40 percent of these children have already experienced a severe or life-threatening reaction.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
