Armanda

Where to find Gluten Free Food for Disater Relief after a Hurricane

Recommended Posts

My name is Armanda, I have celiac and when Hurricane Irma came through we lost everything in our freezer and fridge and have been looking for places that will give out gluten free food and unable to find any, the only things I have found is online that sells things but when a person doesn't have any money what are they suppose to do especially if they lose all of there gluten free food because of a hurricane are we suppose to starve, do they not care about us. If anyone knows of places that are giving out gluten free disaster relief food in Lakeland Florida, winter haven Florida or Auburndale Florida please let me know.

We had some discussions about it here https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/119258-celiacs-in-shelters/?tab=comments#comment-981743

This was primarily about Harvey but the last post brought up a new food bank located in the middle of the united states that specializes in helping people with these issues. I honestly would love to ship you some stuff from my bakery, but I did a big donations with all profits from the past few weeks and any spare money I had going to the San Antonio Food bank.

Here are some links for you. You can eat foods that are whole foods you know. Just look at the ingredients list & make sure it does not contain wheat, barley, rye or malt.
