Okc Tornado gluten-free Food Relief Effort

9 posts in this topic

Go Picnic is donating and distributing gluten-free food to the people hit by the tornado. They have told me that they are trying to work with the Red Cross Disaster Relief to stock gluten-free foods in emergency food trailers. This is from their FB page:

FOOD FOR OKLAHOMA RELIEF**

Many of you have reached out and asked how you can help, especially with providing food to those people requiring special diets, such as gluten-free. We have reached out to our contacts through GIuten Intolerance Group and other support groups to find a good way to get food directly to those in need, and would like to make it easy and affordable for those who would like to to help.

**Through the end of May, GoPicnic will match any meal donation, and provide free shipping to the donation site in Oklahoma.**

The Food Allergy Awareness Coalition is collecting food at the Cherokee Hills Church of Christ site, and will be distributing the food directly to the Red Cross and shelters.

To donate, simply buy any product on GoPicnic.com and at shipping, use the address:

Cherokee Hills Church of Christ

6724 NW 63

Oklahoma City, OK 73132

Attn: Becky

Enter code: HELPOKLAHOMA at checkout, and no shipping will be assessed on the order.

Please note: the free shipping code is only valid on donations to the Cherokee Hills Church of Christ location.

We understand from those at the Food Allergy Awareness Coalition that this need in Oklahoma will continue for several weeks as they work on recovery. Any extra food leftover after this crisis has been addressed will be supplied to the local food banks for continued distribution to the needy.

Many thanks to our great customers for their interest in helping to support relief for this terrible situation.

What we really need is gluten-free food in the food trailers from day 1.  Do they really think a Celiac can eat only an apple, banana and a carton of milk for several days until a Celiac group or GoPicnic can ship them some food?  I think we should write to the Red Cross about that.  There are plenty of gluten-free, shelf- stable protein bar type things they could use as a regular part of the emergency food.

 Do they really think a Celiac can eat only an apple, banana and a carton of milk for several days 

This begs the question :  Do they really think about celiacs at all? No, of course not..... their focus is get people help. period.

 

So, if we are going to "school" the Red Cross, we may need to tell them what will work. They do good work, but they may not know what

can be done for celiacs in need.

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
