Help Gluten-Free Victims of Sandy

By November 2, 2012

Follow me on:

I can't imagine being stuck without power, heat or (most importantly) without safe gluten-free food to eat, but that's likely the situation faced by people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity in areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

Erin Smith, a resident of Astoria, N.Y. and a celiac, is identifying food banks that will accept gluten-free food to go directly to people in need. If you can help in any way, visit her page to learn more: Gluten-Free Hurricane Relief: How to Help.

Hopefully, if as many people as possible pitch in, no one who's already been hit hard by the hurricane will need to face the choice of getting sick or going hungry.
