The program will begin by raising awareness, stimulating training, and promoting the creation of a network of hotels and establishments, can safely and reliably meet the needs of people with gluten intolerance.
To help launch the initiative, representatives from four restaurants joined with the municipal delegate for Social Welfare, Employment and Comprehensive Social Transformation Plans of the City Council, Juan Manuel Flores, to sign protocols for joining to the Network.
