The middle of May is Food Allergy Awareness Week, and there are a few events you might like to attend. Thanks to Living Without for the tip-off.

  • Bowie Baysox Food Allergy Awareness Night. May 14th you can go to a baseball game in Maryland and get a hotdog on a gluten free bun, chips, soda, and a gluten-free cookie. And you get reserved seats high up. How nice is that?! Thanks again, University of Maryland School of Medicine Center for Celiac Research!
  • The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is hosting a Gourmet Gluten Free Benefit on May 6th at the Chicago Hilton and Towers. 20 chefs and restaurants will offer gourmet gluten-free food. There will also be a live and silent auction. Let’s just say you won’t have to BYOB. Or cupcakes.
  • Tuscon, Arizona’s Southern Arizona Celiac Support Group will host a Food Faire May 9th. You can find gluten-free food samples, lots of information, and free screening for celiac disease.
  • Another Food Faire and Education Conference will be held May 2nd in Pasadena, CA by the Celiac Disease Foundation. There will be a GF cooking demonstration, several speeches by doctors involved in celiac research, a gluten-free continental breakfast and lunch, a GF goody bag, a raffle, gluten free pizza and beer tasting, one-on-ones with registered dieticians and gastroenterologists, and much more.
