Midwest’s Fastest-Growing Gluten-Free Expo to Return
The third annual Gluten Free Living Now Expo will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on October 5, at the Fountains, in Carmel. More than 100 vendors, expert speakers and cooking demonstrations to educate the celiac community will be featured.
Over 4,000 attendees from all over the country experienced last year’s expo hosted by the nonprofit Gluten Free Living Now that strives to enhance the lives of those affected by celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and gluten allergies. Attendees can sample new gluten-free foods, witness innovative cooking methods and learn the latest ways to successfully master this previously challenging lifestyle from experts. The Kid’s Corner will facilitate safe playing plus snacking on gluten-free foods while parents enjoy the gluten-free beer and the alcohol garden.
The presenters and vendors recognize that many Hoosiers suffer from celiac disease and related conditions and will showcase products and services that make eating and living a healthy lifestyle more enjoyable again for them. “As awareness of celiac disease and the health benefits of gluten-free diets expand, we expect to see an enormous turnout at the 2013 Expo,” says Shelia Cafferty, co-founder of Gluten Free Living Now. “We are passionate about bettering the lives of those who suffer from a gluten intolerance of any degree and look to empower them with the tools to lead a less restrictive and more liberating life.”
