Gluten Free Food Drive This Weekend

Posted May 05 2010 12:00am
The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is in need of Gluten Free food.

The food bank currently serves more than 500,000 people each day across 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina. It is the ninth largest food bank in the USA and the largest in North Carolina. Using established research that estimates the number of Americans with Celiac Disease means that up to 5,000 (or 1%) of those folks should be consuming Gluten Free food. There are many more Americans that suffer from Gluten Intolerance as well.

There is definitely a need for Gluten Free food – will you help?

The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and the Gluten Free Raleigh Blog need your help to fill the gap.
