Anyone With gluten-free Kids In St. Louis
0

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking to connect with other parents of gluten-free kids in the St. Louis area, and also perhaps find a gluten-free friend for my 7 yr old son who is feeling so left out and lonely right now. Anyone out there?

I did. There is a R.O.C.K. group listed but the contact phone number is disconnected. There is a support group but they only get together once a year and it was in May. I was hoping to meet someone before next May.

That's weird. Let me see if I can find something out. I'm in KC.

These are from the celiac.com page. Down the left side " support groups". Then the link to local groups. I am trying to get a hold of someone I know in St Louis to see if she has anything for you.

Thanks Kareg. Yes, I believe the info you had for the R.O.C.K. group is the same one I came across although I don't remember there being an email address. I'll have to see if that gets me anywhere.

I called all of the contacts listed above and got a call back from Joan who directed me to the Bi-State Celiac Alliance or something like that (can't remember now the exact name but it had Bi-State in it) and that is the group that has a picnic once a year in May but otherwise doesn't seem to get together. It seemed from her message that Joan would have been happy to talk with my by phone about navigating issues or she specifically mentioned recipes but she wasn't able to connect me with anyone who has kids dealing with being gluten-free which is what I'm looking for right now.

The Bi-State Celiac Support Group is the name of the group I was trying to recall.
