Chef to Plate International Awareness Campaign


In my work as a children’s author, researcher, and humanitarian, I am always looking for ways to help people with celiac disease or who are gluten-sensitive by raising awareness and making the gluten-free diet easier to maintain. Therefore, I’m incredibly excited to announce the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America’s 2010 campaign, which you can find out more information about at the following link: . This campaign will help to spread awareness about celiac disease and gluten intolerance by partnering up with restaurants that offer gluten-free foods.

According to GIG, the 2009 campaign was an extraordinary success, which helped people all over learn about gluten intolerance and the gluten-free diet. By partnering with GIG this year, your organization will be included under the media campaign listings as well as on their website—free of cost! When you become a sponsor, contributing toward the cost, you will get your logo featured on the literature in restaurants.

Last year, they sent out over 5,000 pieces of literature to 196 restaurants, including a number of
chain restaurants, in the U.S. and Canada, and they estimate that the campaign reached 1.6 million people alone during Celiac Awareness Month—a very impressive number!

  1. Thanks for posting this. Gluten Intolerance Group seems like a great group, and we should do our parts to support groups that raise awareness for eating gluten-free and celiac disease.

  2. Glad to hear the 2009 campaign was so successful. Look forward to hearing more good news from GIG!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this campaign with us. I think that the more restaurants that offer gluten-free foods, the more people will wonder, “Oh, why gluten-free?” Then with some research they’ll find out about celiac disease and gluten sensitivity–then boom! they’ll have an idea of what might lie behind their own or a friend’s symptoms and get tested. All in all, this is a great campaign on behalf of the celiac community.

  4. Thanks for sharing this information about GIG. I think they are a fantastic group and work very hard on behalf of the celiac community.
