Providing support, education and resources for those seeking a gluten free lifestyle.
Founded in 2010, the Celiac Center of MN meets weekly to provide support to those living a gluten free lifestyle. The Center hosts a monthly class and a weekly orientation for those who are new to the gluten free diet. The Gluten Detectives is comprised of youths 3-17, who meet monthly to investigate, advocate and celebrate!
Support Group, 501(c)3 certification pending.
Mission: To provide support and advocacy to those living a gluten free lifestyle and to foster awareness of Celiac disease and gluten intolerance.
While the weeks of looking back and saying goodbye to 2016 have passed, there is one more farewell that needs to be extended. And that is to you, dear community, as we bring our operations to a close at the Celiac Center of Minnesota, effective 1/31/17. It has been a privilege to serve this community during the past unforgettable seven years, during which we have met so many wonderful families through our meetings, events and Gluten Detective camp. However, we feel our mission of directing local resources to the gluten free community has been achieved. The digital landscape has made these resources, once shared exclusively by word of mouth and hard copy lists, instantly available to our community. While technology can never replace the comforting hug and counsel of someone who has walked the same path, the busy demands of family schedules (both of our community’s and our own) have made it difficult to deliver that personal support in a consistent and meaningful manner. It truly has been an honor to have helped the dozens of families who have walked through our doors over the years! Good luck to all, and thank you for your support!

Back to school supplies and decor for dorm rooms are populating the store aisles in every store, but for our gluten free students, back to school means more than decorating a new room--it means navigating the challenges of a college cafeteria, some of which are not exactly celiac friendly.

May they be an example to educational institutions everywhere! http://www.bestcollegesonline.com/blog/14-colleges-that-cater-to-gluten-free-students/

Anyone interested in the following:
“EF High School Exchange Year, a nonprofit J-1 Visa exchange program, is currently seeking volunteer families in Minnesota interested in opening their home to international exchange students for the 2016-2017 academic year. We are currently hoping to find homes for some of our students who suffer from gluten intolerance or celiac disease. We have three girls from Spain, Norway and Italy and one boy from Spain. EF has families of all kinds and would love for yours to become part of our cultural exchange experience. Our 3 primary requirements of host families are to provide a bed for the student, to provide 3 meals a day, and to provide reasonable transportation for our students - but above all, we hope that our families will welcome our students as one of their own. If you would like more information on how to become involved, please contact Rachel Caldas at [email protected], 617-619-2179, or send me a private message. You can find more information on our program here: http://www.efexchangeyear.org/" Thank you for your time and consideration! Please let me know if I can answer any questions or comments! Best, Rachel
