I just stumbled upon this and think it offers some good information. I don't know if anyone has already posted about this...(nice to see that their resources page has some Canadian ones -- including "Allergic Living"!)

FAI'S MISSION

The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that raises funds toward the effective treatment and cure for food allergies.

Food allergies differ from other allergies because a minuscule amount of the wrong food can be fatal. Today, it is estimated that 11,000,000 Americans are affected by food allergies, 30,000 visit emergency rooms, and hundreds die each year.

FAI is the first organization dedicated to a strategic, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to food allergies. Our program is designed to help the millions of children and adults who live in fear of eating the wrong food with every bite they take.

Funds raised by FAI are invested in research that seeks to find a cure and improve clinical treatment. FAI has established a Medical Advisory Board to identify and recommend the most promising research in the United States and around the world. FAI also provides grants to entities that serve and support food allergic patients and their families at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.

In addition, it is FAI’s mission to raise public awareness about the seriousness of food allergies. Through effective educational programs and public information, FAI heightens awareness of food allergies and the danger of anaphylaxis among the media, health care workers, education and child care professionals, while also working with the nation’s policy makers to create a safer environment and improve care for the food allergic population.
