Food Allergy Chef Cards

When I was younger, I recall how my parents were hesitant for us to visit a country that spoke a different language. They were worried that we would be unable to properly articulate my food allergies to the restaurant or street vendors. That is when we discovered food allergy "chef cards." These cards provide food warriors and their families peace of mind when traveling.

FARE provides sample chef cards you can print out and show to the "chef" of the restaurant, food truck, or food stand. FARE offers these cards in the following language:

  • English

  • Chinese (Simplified)

  • Chinese (Traditional)

  • Dutch

  • French

  • German

  • Italian

  • Japanese

  • Portuguese

  • Spanish

  • Swedish

Here's a link to their site where you can print out PDF copies of the chef card you need:

As I think about college and potential study abroad options, these chef cards will be an invaluable resource to help me explore one of the best parts of a new culture: THE FOOD!
