Gratitude and Growth

2009 December 17


The deep felt gratitude I have for the individuals, corporations and media who attended the launch of the Nation’s First Gluten Free Food Bank can’t really be expressed with words I can type.  They seem so flat and impersonal. Those who attended know how much more powerful an experience is with me when it’s live and in person.  When we are all in one place together it’s electrifying!

In an effort to tell the complete story and not leave any of our generous corporate or individual donors out, I will write my recap Friday. I am also more likely to have photos by then.

Growth – 11% of Food Baskets Gluten Free Today

I stopped by to drop off gluten free bread and saw how overwhelmed the staff and volunteers were so I came back, 45 minutes before closing time, just to help them sort all the new gluten free donations. It was humbling and exhilarating all at once. Cookies and Cookie Mixes from Glow Gluten Free; Gluten Free Essentials; Pamela's; Betty CrockerGF Snacks; Beans; Fruit
