May is Celiac Awareness Month and The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is running a Blogger a Day feature on their website! Saturday, my blog GlutenFreeLI will be featured!! I attended the NFCA’s Appetite for Awareness in Philadelphia back in October 2010 and it was outstanding! The size of the fair they put on was very impressive, and they had tons of stuff to do there, and I don’t think I’ve ever eaten that much gluten-free food in my life! It was one of the best gluten-free events I have attended.
I am very excited to be featured as one of their “bloggers for a day” and you can check out the Blogger a Day under the Celiac Central Bits and Bites page here: http://celiaccentral.wordpress.com/ (mine won’t be up until Saturday, but on Saturday, I will post the new link!)

NFCA also sponsors a wonderful program called GREAT (Gluten-Free Resource Education and Awareness Training) Business Association, which helped put more gluten-free products in stores and online this past year. GREAT Business Association members agree to use good manufacturing practices to investigate ingredients, test products and label properly to keep gluten-free consumers safe and satisfied. This is something that is so important for businesses and restaurants to understand the needs of safe gluten-free food preparation.
