Section 504 and Written Management Plans

FARE recommends that parents of children with food allergy create, in collaboration with their school, a written food allergy management plan. One type of plan is called a 504 Plan, which is available under a federal civil rights law, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

A 504 Plan outlines how a school will address the individual needs of your child. Learn how to develop one with your school team.

Your school should have an appropriate Food Allergy Management and Prevention Plan in place to promote the health and well-being of children with food allergies.

School plans should establish priorities for reducing the risk of exposure to food allergens and establish practices for responding to food allergies.
