#TEAMGLUTENFREE is at it again! I am running for the 2020 Virtual charity challenge. Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease…
I have teamed up with some of the best gluten-free businesses for the GFREEWIFEY HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE 2018. Our food banks are always in need food. Those of us with celiac or gluten sensitivity can attest to the cost of gfree foods. I am asking you to take the One Bag Challenge an donate to help our neighbors.
Some amazing shops will be collection points for your gluten-free and allergen friendly non perishable donations and have donated great prizes to be won by holiday donors.
Small business want to make an impact in their community so being able to advocate, organize and facilitate this holiday campaign means they are able to give back to the community while continuing to focus on building their amazing gluten free businesses we all love at this crucial time. Collaborate when ever you can, Everyone grows together to make healthier communities with more positive impactful results.
Lets work together this holiday to feed our neighbors and ensure access to safe food for all.
Last year the Mississauga food-bank saw an eighteen percent increase in users and another 15% increase this year. That is year over year increase in people who are hungry! 1-5 percent of people require a gluten-free diet and more than 7 percent of the population suffers from allergies. Neither of these statistics include food intolerance’s that can make the body sick, lethargic and vulnerable.
I invite you to take the #onebagchallange and think of your community members who are experiencing food insecurity with food allergies or intolerance.
- Fill a bag or bring an with gluten-free /allergen friendly non perishables item whatever you can manage any amount will help.
