The gluten-free diet is currently the only treatment for celiac disease and it is roughly two to three times more expensive than a gluten-containing diet. Just imagine you are one of the millions of Americans who struggle to pay your bills and keep a roof over your head. How can you afford a loaf of bread that costs around $6.00?
Through their ground-breaking Feeding Gluten-Free program, the National Celiac Association (NCA) has been working to stock this expensive but medically necessary GF food in food banks and pantries around the nation to help the most vulnerable in our community. This, and their other programs are helping to shine a light on what it’s like to live with celiac disease every day.
