GFREEWIFEY' Gluten-free Food Bank

$2,204 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 86 people in 15 months
Hello friends,

As GFREEWIFEY FOOD BANK celebrates another incredible success I want to first thank each one of you for your contribution to all of our achievements this year, Including most recently a $1000 donation to The Stop Food Bank to support them providing access to safe food for people who require a gluten-free diet. The Stop Community started in the 80’s and has grown into a thriving community offering a broad range of programs that provide healthy food and many other amazing initiatives.

If you did not meet me at Gluten Free Garage 2018 or one of many other events you may have been introduced to the GFREEWIFEY Food Bank initiative when you recently visited The butternut Baking Co. This place is a hidden gem in the junction neighbourhood of Toronto. A top gluten-free bakery specializing not only in celiac safe gluten free eats but grain-free, refined sugar free, preservative and artificial flavour / colour free with paleo and keto inspired items. The place is a hotspot of like minded individuals enjoying real food. Which made it a perfect spot to fundraise for The Stop community who share the views on ensuring access to healthy food! This event raised nearly $400 towards this donation. As a thank you Owners Michelle and Chris have offered me a dozen donuts for two lucky winners selected at random (check your email to see if you won!)

This donation marks the end of a successful year for GFREEWIFEY FOOD BANK filled with fundraising events and food collections While marking the beginning of a new year to educate and empower community organizations and partners while providing access to safe food for all. Be sure to sign up for the GFREEWIFEY email list to keep upto date on amazing events happening. Watch for me at tons of great events this year collecting gluten-free non perishables as always if your doing your monthly pantry clean up remember to donate to your local food bank or contact me to arrange a pick up.

I am working on a really fun project and am inviting people in the community to contribute. Do you have a gluten-free recipe that you love or that helped you transition to a gluten-free life. I would love to hear your story about going gluten-free. Send me an email now for your chance to share with the community.

I want to hear from you if:
- You life a gluten-free life and have tips or tricks to help people transition to a gluten-free life and have a recipes you love.
- if you want to have a confidential conversation and are experiencing food insecurity / your local food bank is not equipped to support you.
- You work with a community organization, food program, healthcare practice, that would benefit from educational resources about adhering to a strict gluten free lifestyle. (Yes, it’s more than just food. Its self care products too like lipstick, hairspray lotions and medications)
- You have an event that would be great to host a gfreewifey food bank fundraiser or food collection!

CAN WE DO IT AGAIN $1000 ..

DID YOU KNOW... every dollar donated can provide upto 3 meals to someone in need in our communities. I always say when your grocery shopping "BUY TWO & DONATE ONE", (Any glutenfree non-perishable pantry items will be donated to The Canadian Red Cross who has expressed a need to me for support with providing acess to safe food)

Today I would like to support further by asking you to join me raising funds for gluten-free pantry items or If you have non-perishable items or a donation for pick up please send me an email or DM.

Many people struggle to afford food and eating glutenfree can be especially costly! With Celiac Disease becoming one of the fastest growing autoimmune disease and 80% of sufferers undiagnosed or misdiagnosed this is a growing concern for our food banks and communities. A glutenfree diet is a necessity for 2 in 100 people it is not a trendy lifestyle choice it is mandatory to recover and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Let's work together to END HUNGER close to home.

THE FIRST $1000 WAS DONATED TO DAILY BREAD FOOD BANK. TO ASSIST ONE OF THE OVER 200 FOOD PROGRAMS THEY SUPPORT TO PROVIDE GLUTENFREE FOOD TO PEOPLE IN NEED. (MAY 1, 2018)

Hello everyone! It’s that time again I am celebrating another year of blogging and sharing my ups downs and journey as a celiac. To celebrate I will be at The Butternut Baking Co in Toronto this weekend serving up all the amazing glutenfree, grain free, sugar free, paleo and keto friendly treats while fundraising for The Stop Food Bank. I would love your support to reach my goal of $1000 to help them provide access to safe food. Any non perishables will be used to support clients of the CCA who are in distress and need of urgent support. Thanks in advance it means the world to me Jess aka GFREEWIFEY

We have done it! $1000... Thank you so much for your support in my first campaign to raise awareness for celiac disease and provide access to safe food to people in our communities.

I have made a contribution to the daily bread food bank on behalf of GFREEWIFEY FOODBANK check my website for the link to that donation (May 1, 2018). Watch for our new campaign starting this May for celiac awareness month supporting The Stop Food Bank.

If you know anyone who works with a community organization, retirement home, health care facility, daycare, food bank or food program that may need some support with providing access to safe food or education about safe food, I would love if you would connect me with them.

Thanks for your support - Jessica Danford
