May is Food Allergy Awareness Month

May is Food Allergy Awareness Month, a good time to raise awareness about food allergies.

This year, we have teamed up once again with to turn the world teal, the signature color of food allergy awareness.

‘Turn it Teal’, founded by Cleveland, Ohio native Stephanie Lowe in 2014, was created with the goal of lighting as many prominent monuments and buildings as possible
to highlight Food Allergy Awareness Month an initiative intended to educate the public regarding the seriousness of food allergies.

The lighting of the Sydney Town Hall in 2017 made history, being the first building outside of North America to turn teal in support of food allergy awareness.
This year the stunning Sydney Town Hall will once again turn teal in support of Food Allergy Awareness – Sunday, May 12, 2019.
Last year two more Australian cities Brisbane and Perth joined the initiative.
This year both return, Brisbane will light the beautiful Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge on Saturday, 4th of May 2019!
While the Trafalgar Bridge in Perth will ‘Turn It Teal’ over two nights Wednesday, 15th and Thursday, 16th of May!
Melbourne has become the latest city to join, and will light up the beautiful Melbourne Town Hall on Monday, 13th to Saturday, 18th of May!
Thank you to all the great folk that helped make this happen.

TRIGGER Food Allergy Awareness founder, Grace Farah said: “It was so exciting to see Australian buildings lit in Teal. It’s a great initiative –
people see the building lit and it starts a conversation, but it also shows Australian kids and families dealing with food allergies that Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth cares and Australia cares. This year, the hope is to see as many other countries, cities and towns come on board and turn their buildings teal and show their support.”
