Highlights include a $2,500 gluten-free pantry makeover, guest blogger campaign and webcast with celiac researchers.
May is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month, and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has a variety of ways to celebrate. This year's theme is KISS: Keep It Simple and Safe, and these activities will do just that.
Gluten-Free Pantry Raid
Individuals who donate $20 or more to NFCA during May 1-31, 2012 will be entered in the Gluten-Free Pantry Raid. One Grand Prize winner will receive a gluten-free shopping spree and an in-home visit from NFCA Founder & President Alice Bast - a prize worth $2,500. Second place and runner-up prizes are also available.
NFCA has recruited more than 16 bloggers to share their tips and advice on keeping things simple and safe, no matter what stage of the gluten-free journey. Guest blogs will be posted each weekday on NFCA's staff blog: Celiac Central: Bits and Bites.
Live Chat with Experts on Gluten-Related Disorders
Alice Bast will lead a live panel discussion on celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, featuring top celiac disease researchers. The event will take place on May 3, 2012 at 2 p.m. ET and can be watched online from any computer with Internet access.
