Gluten Free Food Sorting at Calgary Food Bank

Help us help low-income Calgarians with Celiac Disease

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2012) - With the launch of our first gluten-free food drive, comes an opportunity for all of us at the Calgary Food Bank to go back to school ...

Gluten-free food drive pioneer, and owner of the Calgary Gluten Free Store, Vicki Brown, will be teaching key staff and volunteers at the Food Bank how to sort gluten-free!

We invite the media to join us and help promote this very important initiative. In one year, the number of Celiac Hampers that the Food Bank distributes has increased by 25%. Not only do we as staff and volunteers need to learn how to identify gluten-free foods, we need our donors to understand too, so we can continue to meet the demand.

Who: Vicki Brown - owner, Calgary Gluten Free Store and Food Bank staff & volunteers

What: Gluten free sorting on our mechanized sorting line - staff and volunteers will be positioned along the conveyor belt in the sorting area of our 40,000 sq foot warehouse, learning to identify what's safe for a gluten-free hamper

Where: Calgary Food Bank (enter through Administration) - 5000 11 Street SE

When: Monday November 12 - 11am to 12 noon
