Because GIG cares about those in our community who struggle to afford gluten-free food, and we know that the cost of gluten-free food is one of the biggest challenges our community faces, GIG is preparing to launch a new initiative in partnership with Cutting Costs for Celiacs! Listen to the Celiac Project podcast to hear all about it and sign up to stay informed here.


GIG is proud to announce the NEW Gluten-Free Food Service (GFFS) Coach Program! This nationwide program is recruiting coaches to help educate food establishments and expand gluten-free offerings across the US.

Join us to help spread awareness about celiac disease using the resources and sharables we created just for you.  

We’re working on articles and other educational content and would love to hear (and possibly share) YOUR story. If you are interested in potentially being quoted, highlighted, or mentioned in our content, share your story with us!


GIG has 90 support groups throughout the country. If you are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered to speak at a virtual educational event, contact GIG today at gig.marketing@gluten.org.
