The Mornington Peninsula Shire supports Food Allergy Week - on between 23 May and 29 May 2021. Coordinated by Allery and Anaphylaxis Australia, it calls on all Australians to 'Be Aware and Show You Care' by getting involved with this year’s activities.
Food Allergy Week is an important annual initiative that aims to raise awareness about food allergy in Australia, to help reduce the risk of a reaction for those living with food allergy and to help manage potentially life-threatening emergencies when they happen.
