----- GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Annual Gluten Free Food Fair

Anchor Baptist Church
Nancy Spears, Event Coordinator
(616) 970-1568
6th Annual Gluten Free Food Fair
GRAND RAPIDS, MI: March 26, 2012
Anchor Baptist Church presents the 2012 Gluten Free Food Fair, on Saturday, May 19th at the DeltaPlex Arena and Conference Center located at 2500 Turner NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The purpose of this free event is to increase awareness of Celiac Disease while learning about and sampling gluten free products. A large variety of products will be available for purchase.
Many special opportunities are available at this free event: speak with vendors and restaurant representatives; attend a variety of conferences: Gluten Free 101 and Celiac & Diabetes led by Anne Lee, Schar's dietitian, and Gluten Free and Healthy by Shari Steinbach, Meijer's dietician; and meet Miss Grand Valley, Alexa Allor, whose platform is celiac awareness.
Current statistics are that 1 in 133 people have celiac disease. The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center on their website states that "97% of celiac disease sufferers are undiagnosed". It continues with: "The number of Americans with celiac disease would fill 936 cruise ships. Passengers on 908 of the ships won't know they have it."
Anchor Baptist Church has a passion for bringing people out of the darkness and into the light, spiritually and physically. To assist the growing gluten free community with the complexities of life, Anchor will be launching "Bread 4 Life Ministry", which will begin with a nine week support group giving tools for restoring health, hope, and relationships.
More information about Anchor Baptist Church and its ministries can be found at http://www.myanchorbaptist.org
If you'd like more information about this event or to schedule an interview please call Nancy Spears at (616) 970-1568 or email Steve Leister at publicity@glutenfreegr.com
