Tomorrow is the kick off of the second annual Chef-to-Plate Campaign sponsored by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America. This is a national awareness campaign for gluten-free living, through the restaurants that support persons living with gluten-free intolerances. I encourage you to support your local restaurants that are participating during the month of May. For a complete list of participating restaurants, please visit the GIG website.
I am happy to announce that Gustorangics is participating in this campaign for its second year. Gustorganics is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. They are part of the Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP) as of 2009. In addition, they have graciously hosted two NYC Celiac Disease Meetups in 2009.
A new addition to the NYC Chef-to-Plate line up is my new favorite restaurant Bar Breton! Bar Breton has been very proactive since their opening to understand the dietary needs of those with celiac disease and a gluten intolerance. They are part of the GREAT program, they are applying for GFRAP status, and they are excited to be a participant in the 2nd annual Chef-to-Plate Campaign.
- Helps spread awareness of gluten intolerance. This condition affects more than 15 million people in the US alone! Last year, we reached 1.625 million people with information about celiac disease and gluten intolerance.
- Gives national exposure of participating restaurants on www.gluten.net and www.glutenfreerestaurants.org.
- Increases business through customer loyalty. 96% of gluten-free consumers are brand loyal.
- A great way to show community stewardship through an event with a nationally recognized nonprofit leader respected for its programs.
