Food allergies are a potentially life-threatening condition that affect approximately 12 million Americans, or one in 25 people, many of them children. The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) supports research on the causes and treatments of food allergies and works to improve the quality of life of those affected. The St. Louis FAAN chapter will hold its annual walk to raise funds for this important research on Saturday, Oct. 30.
