Gluten-Free Emergency Planning
Hurricane Sandy was a few weeks ago, but there are still so many people who are still without power and many who are homeless. The hurricane was a wake-up call to many celiacs wondering if they were prepared for a disaster like this one. The packing of food, medication, and water is essential when preparing for a natural disaster. My colleague Cheryl Harris, MPH, put together a great list of suggestions for preparing your gluten-free "go" kit for a natural disaster. Her list includes gluten-free canned goods, starches, ready-to-go meals and even snacks. It is better to have a safe bag of food prepared and to never use it than to have nothing ready for a time of emergency. Click here to read Cheryl's article.

Thanks so much for sharing, Erin. You're right, what a HUGE wakeup call to all of us! I am very hopeful the NY experience will help us convince foodbank's here of the very real need (in disaster times and not!)

Great advice, thanx
