News from The Gluten Intolerance Group

The Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) is please to announce a national
awareness campaign: "Chef to Plate - Celebrating Restaurants Serving Up
Gluten-Free Awareness"

This campaign is to provide support to those restaurants with gluten-free
menus and spread awareness of celiac disease and other forms of gluten
intolerances through a national awareness campaign.

Campaign Goals:

*Spread national awareness of celiac disease and gluten intolerance
conditions during May, Celiac Awareness Month

*Spread recognition and awareness of restaurants with gluten-free menu

*Bring Peace of Mind to persons with gluten intolerances when dining out

*Joining of restaurants across the country in a day of awareness

This campaign is about spreading awareness of celiac disease and gluten
intolerances and the restaurants that provide GF offerings - not the
promotion of any specific restaurant program.

By working together we can promote awareness of celiac disease and gluten
intolerances with the greatest amount of resources - the gluten intolerant
community. "Helping Hands to Provide Peace of Mind" is GIG's volunteer
program and is a grass roots effort to support persons living with gluten
intolerances through GIG's various programs and activities. Grassroots
efforts to spread awareness can accomplish a lot with minimal financial

Leaders across the celiac community have been invited to join this awareness
effort. Anyone can help.

*Be a Campaign Leader

*Spread Awareness - blog about it, pass it on to everyone you know

*Volunteer to help with the administration of the campaign

*Participate in the event

If you would like to help or know a restaurant that would be interested,
please contact or visit

I'll definitely be blogging for that in May especially about my trip to Disney World. I ate so well gluten free and was impressed by the knowledge and the preparation by the Chefs. I met each one in every restaurant and they were so fabulous ...I felt like a princess.
Hope all is well with you Ging!
