How to Donate Gluten-Free Food to Houston

The celiac community, like many communities out there, has come together to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you’d like to help by sending gluten-free food down to those in Houston are who are in need, please read the following email conversation between myself and Susan Daniels from the Houston ROCK Group.

Susan:

Hi Gluten Dude,

I am in Houston, and my son, who is about to turn 8, has celiac disease. I am part of the Houston ROCK group (Raising our Celiac Kids). If anyone you know in the celiac community wants to send safe GF treats to the Houston kids to cheer them up as we recover from Harvey, I can coordinate getting them out to the neighborhoods. My house didn’t flood, thank goodness, but my mom’s did and I am helping her recover her things. Some grocery stores are stocking back up, but it is hit or miss depending on the neighborhood. I’m sure you can imagine. Let me know if you know anyone interested in helping out.

Thanks,
Susan

Me:

Thank you so much Susan. What should I tell the community specifically?

Susan:

Thanks, Gluten Dude.

The Houston ROCK group has approximately 40 kids, ranging from toddlers to teenagers. They are spread out all over Houston and surrounding suburbs. School has started back up already for some kids, but for the Houston ISD it starts Tuesday 9/11. Houston ISD will be providing 3 meals a day for all students because of Harvey, but of course their food is not GF. Parents will be trying to pack lunches for their kids. I would think the most helpful things would be:

  • Bread for making sandwiches.
  • Cookies/brownies or any treats.
  • Nutritious GF items for school lunches that don’t need to be cooked for those who don’t have electricity, are living in a house with the drywall ripped out, or are in a shelter.

Of course, items would need to be safe for kids with celiac disease. If there are any leftovers I can share with our Houston Celiac Support Group, which is a group of adults with celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

I have a mailbox at a UPS store that didn’t flood, and they will hold packages for me in an air conditioned place. The name is under my first name, Isadora. I go by my middle name, Susan.

Thank you,
Susan

So there you have it folks. Whatever you can do would be most appreciated. And THANK YOU SUSAN.

(And now we brace for Hurricane Irma.)

What Recourse Do We Have When a Restaurant Lies to Us?

Maybe it’s just me…or perhaps it’s today’s political culture…but I just don’t find it difficult to tell the truth. More than that, I find it almost impossible to lie.

Is this Celiac Awareness or Fear-Mongering?

I’m warning you ahead of time…this post may be a bit sloppy and all over the place (kinda like my sex life when I was younger) as I’m still trying to grapple with my thoughts behind it. Ok…here we go. As most of you probably know, May is Celiac Awareness Month and lots of bloggers […]

Need Your Help Passing the Gluten in Medicine Disclosure Act 2019

They say that common etiquette means not talking about sex, religion or politics. Hmmm…I’ve already talked about sex drive, if sperm is gluten free, and gluten-free sex for only $27. I’ve also discussed if you can pray your celiac away and if a church has the right to ban gluten-free hosts. Since we’ve already pretty […]

$100,000 Lawsuit for Getting Glutened? C’mon!

There is a Twitter account called Endless Screaming. Every time he or she tweets, it’s simply: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! That’s exactly my reaction to a fellow celiac suing a Las Vegas restaurant $100,000 for causing “permanent injury” after getting glutened. I’ll say it again: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Here’s the article. And here’s the Gluten Dude breakdown. A Los Angeles […]
