Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest at State Fairgrounds
Gluten Free and More magazine (formerly Living Without magazine) will present the Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., August 23 and 24, in the Expo Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Event attendees will learn that living with a food allergy or sensitivity doesn’t need to be about deprivation and missing out.
Leading experts will give presentations and answer questions about food allergies while chefs help solve gluten-free cooking challenges. Free sampling of glutenfree and allergy-friendly foods, including pastas, sauces, baked goods and snack foods, will also be provided.
“The Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest is a celebration for our gluten-free community,” notes Shelia Cafferty, co-founder of Gluten Free Living Now and event organizer. “It’s a show that provides education and information about celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and information about the gluten-free diet and is really for everyone as most of us know someone that struggles with a gluten intolerance or other food allergies and food sensitivities. Even those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and those with autoimmune diseases can greatly benefit on the gluten-free diet.”
This event is part of a nationwide series that started in San Diego, California, earlier this year and will expand to seven cities by 2015.
