We know an increasing number of our guests are living with Celiac Disease; that’s why this month – during Celiac Awareness Month – we want to shed some light on ways we provide information and assistance on this and other food allergies. Whether you have recently been diagnosed with a food allergy or have been living with one for a period of time, or maybe you’re just making a lifestyle change, we want to make the journey easier for you and your family.
From our Gluten Free Recipes created by our Mealtime Mentors, our Natural & Organic Department, to our Gluten Free Care Packages for those recently diagnosed guests, we have products and services available to meet your needs. Have you heard about Mealtime Mentors?
We even have an entire page on our website dedicated to special diets because we know that gluten intolerance is not the only dietary restriction our guests are facing. Whether it’s allergies to peanuts, dairy or fish, to name just a few, we’ve got insights and information from our nutrition experts. May 14-20 is Food Allergy Awareness Week, which gives us a great opportunity to talk about the information we have available to our guests.
Throughout May, we’ll have:
- Testimonials from guests and associates who are living with food allergies and intolerances
- New recipes that are perfect for our guests with food allergies or Celiac Disease on our blog, and on Instagram each Wednesday when we feature Eat Well with Emily
- A live broadcast on May 17 on Facebook that will feature our Food Safety experts as well as our Mealtime Mentors, who will be answering your questions about food allergies
- Prizes throughout the month
As we get rolling, we want to know: How have food allergies or Celiac Disease affected you or someone you know? Or do you have questions for our Mealtime Mentors? Use #GlutenFreeAtFestival to join the conversation.
We are very passionate about making it simple for you to find food and make meals that are safe for your family. Want to learn more? Hear from our Food Safety team on how we work diligently to ensure guest safety when it comes to food allergies.
