GF Food Drive for Food Banks
Once again, we ask all who can, to put together a brown grocery bag of non-perishable, clearly labelled gluten-free food for people who need to eat gluten-free for medical reasons.
Here is the link for labels to print out and staple to your grocery bag – scroll down to the section Download and Print labels: https://www.celiac.ca/get-involved/savemeforglutenfree/
Saturday May 14th 2 – 4 pm OUTDOOR GET-TOGETHER for a walk/stroll in Angrignon Park in LaSalle.
Meeting point will be a grassy mound to right of parking lot as you come out of Metro, or bus station area at Angrignon. Look for people wearing T-shirts that say Gluten-Free or Canadian Celiac Association. Print CELIAC on a piece of paper to hold in front of you, so we can find each other and bring water, a sun hat, and maybe an umbrella. There is some street parking on Boulevard Trinitaire.
Monday May 16th is International Celiac Awareness Day. The Olympic stadium in Montreal will be lit green to mark the occasion.
