Food Allergy Research & Education has announced a partnership with MenuTrinfo, a provider of nutritional analysis and allergen training, to offer the company's AllerTrain program to foodservice operators and their teams.

As part of FARE's new College Food Allergy Program, which aims to provide a safer college experience for students with food allergies, training for college and university foodservice staff will be a key goal of the partnership, according to a news release.

MenuTrinfo's AllerTrain service offers training in the classroom setting, as well as live webinars that are conducted by an instructor. The program teaches chefs and foodservice employees safe handling and delivery procedures of meals to diners with food allergies, the release said. Available training includes MenuTrinfo's AllerTrain U, AllerTrain U Condensed, and AllerTrain K12 programs, which are designed for university and school foodservice staff, respectively.

AllerTrain programs are eligible for American Culinary Federation continuing education credits and include a three-year certification that broadcasts to customers that foodservice establishments have the ability to safely meet unique dietary needs.

"FARE is proud to partner with MenuTrinfo to provide this comprehensive training program, which teaches chefs and foodservice employees how to provide safe meals to diners with food allergies," said John L. Lehr, CEO of FARE. "In addition to training for restaurant staff, the AllerTrain program offers specialized training for school and university foodservice operators, allowing children, teens and young adults to enjoy safe meals away from home."
