NCA has uncovered an extreme lack of GF food in many food pantries across the US with COVID-19. NCA has been receiving increased requests for GF food assistance. Giving Gluten-Free is our pilot initiative to help get GF food to people who need it across the US by connecting GF food companies with area food pantries.
We can't do this alone!
Our thanks to the Celiac Centers at BIDMC & MGH and Tricia Thompson from the Gluten Free Watchdog for their generous efforts. Abby Kelly from Wicked Gluten Free kindly touched base with over 40 of her vendors, and Curtis Zimmerman also helped us make some connections.
We need monetary donations to keep this program running. Please give today.
Here are a few of the connections we have facilitated so far:
