Tell Us at NFCA

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is planning an educational session about cross-contamination in restaurants and the impact that concern has on those who must follow a lifelong gluten-free diet.

To facilitate our conversation, we want to hear what your thoughts and opinions are on gluten-free dining and cross-contamination risks. Here are some questions to consider in your comments:

  •  What questions do you ask when you dine out?
  • Do you feel guilty when you make special requests at restaurants?
  • What are your biggest hesitations about dining out?
  • What response have you received from chefs and servers when you ask for a gluten-free meal?
  • If you are served a dish that you think may be contaminated with gluten, what do you do?
  • What are some signs you look for to indicate whether a restaurant can meet your special dietary needs?
  • Do you feel that dining out is always a risk for people with gluten-related disorders?

Thank you for sharing your feedback!
