Australia Puts A ‘Teal’ Spotlight On Food Allergy Awareness – Sydney, Brisbane and Perth set to shine next week for food allergy awareness week.

In support of Food Allergy Awareness Week (13-19 May, 2018) three Australian cities will light up in teal –the colour associated with food allergy awareness.

The iconic Sydney Town Hall, which last year became the first building outside of North America to join the ‘Turn it Teal’ initiative, will once again light up on Friday May 18, 2018.

The City of Brisbane joins the ‘Turn It Teal’ movement and will light up both the Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge on Wednesday the 16th of May 2018.

The City of Perth, Western Australia will put the spotlight on food allergy awareness by lighting the Trafalgar Bridge in teal Wednesday 16th and 17th of May.

‘Turn it Teal’ was started by a U.S.A mother, Stephanie Lowe with the goal of lighting as many prominent monuments and buildings as possible to highlight Food Allergy Awareness Week.TRIGGER Food Allergy Awareness has joined the initiative to ‘Turn it Teal’in Australia and beyond.
“This is such a great idea to raise food allergy awareness and I’m so proud of Sydney, Brisbane and Perth and we have other Australian cities indicating they’ll be on board next year” TRIGGER founder Grace Farah stated.
‘People see a building or a bridge lit, it starts a conversation but it also shows our Australian children and families dealing with food allergies that Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Australia cares.’
‘We want to express our heartfelt thanks to all the great folks at Sydney, Brisbane and Perth councils who have made this happen’.

This May ‘Turn It Teal’ will see many buildings lit up including the Empire State Building in New York, JFK Airport Air Traffic Control Tower, Seattle’s Pacific Science Center and Niagara Falls in the Buffalo/Toronto area.
