Upon receiving an increase in requests for GF food assistance and uncovering an extreme lack of gluten-free (GF) food in many food pantries across the US, NCA launched Feeding Gluten-Free. The goal ofthis initiative is to connect GF food companies to food pantries across the US. Click here to see some of the GF food NCA has helped distribute to area food pantries so far. This is a massive undertaking, and NCA can’t succeed without your help. Together, let's move the needle to provide much needed GF food for our struggling celiac community. Please consider a generous donation so together we can deliver GF food to those who need it the most. If you are able to contribute financially to this effort, please visit https://nationalceliac.org/giving-gluten-free/.If you are a manufacturer and can donate food, please contact Carla Carter at email@example.com. Thank you!
