Appetite for Awareness 2010: It's a Wrap!


Update: Due to a change in venue and season for NFCA's community event, Appetite for Awareness: A Gluten-Free Cooking Spree is now scheduled for May 2012.

NFCA will be hosting an intimate gathering, Appetite for Awareness: Gluten-Free Meets Haute Cuisine, honoring Dr. Ritu Verma this fall. If you are interested in learning more about this fundraiser, please call Nancy Ginter at 215-325-1306 x101 or email nginter@celiaccentral.org.

Another Appetite for Awareness has come to a close, but there's still plenty to see and celebrate. Held on Oct. 24 at the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal at the Navy Yard, this year's gluten-free food fest gathered a record 1,600 - and they all left with a smile (not to mention, a goodie bag filled to the brim).

Whether you attended in person or were there in spirit, check out the our post-event coverage of the celiac and foodie friendly event.
