  • Through Feeding Gluten-Free, address the chronic lack of gluten-free options in food banks and pantries across the nation; 
  • Maintain mutually beneficial contacts within the medical community to help educate medical professionals about celiac disease and to keep abreast of recent scientific studies for the benefit of our members; 
  • Disseminate current information about celiac disease and adherence to a gluten-free diet to the community, which includes but is not limited to: 
    • A monthly e-newsletter 
    • Our magazine, Gluten-Free Nation
    • Webinars and conferences co-hosted with the Harvard Medical School Celiac Research Center 
    • Through various social media platforms; 
  • Provide a continuously expanding network of support groups throughout the nation as well as host national virtual support groups for adults, pediatrics and caregivers;
