We welcome your participation in this festive event.  If you have a gluten free item to donate, please bring it.

If you know someone in need, and they live in Loveland, Berthoud or south Fort Collins, have them contact House of Neighborly Service to find out screening criteria.

Although only about 1% of the U.S. population has Celiac disease, General Mills says its research shows about 12% of U.S. households want to eliminate or reduce their gluten intake.
