Celiac Awareness Month | May 2021
May is Celiac Awareness Month!
Help spread awareness about this serious genetic autoimmune disease with Gluten Free Journey!
Every May, thousands globally combine efforts coast to coast, sea to sea, to educate others about Celiac Disease, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, and the gluten free diet.
By raising the profile of celiac disease, we are able to reach people who haven’t been diagnosed, as well as educate the public about gluten free eating and celiac disease.
Celiac Disease research CAN’T wait.
During these uncertain times, celiac disease patients are united in sharing messages of solidarity, health and, most importantly, hope.
We hope for future treatments and a cure. We hope for a future where we can live and eat without fear. We hope for a day when the uncertainties of today are far behind us.
Celiac disease research can’t wait. Help make a difference!
Help continue the work that goes into helping people with celiac disease live better & longer, until doctors can find a cure.

What is GFreeWifey Food Bank?
A non-profit passion project created and run by Jessica Danford. Jessica identified a gap in service for people experiencing food insecurity on a gluten-free diet as a result in 2018 the project started.
Since its inception, the project has brought the community together to make a huge impact and influence national attention to the issue.
Gfreewifey food-bank currently provides directly to 25 individuals and families throughout the very Greater Toronto Area. Safe food boxes are delivered by Jessica discreetly and directly to Toronto, Mississauga, Scarborough, Ajax, Pickering, Newmarket, Barrie, Orillia and so many more, as the list of people seeking access to safe food grows so too does the area of deliveries grow.
