What are Anti Panic Sessions?

A crash course about transitioning to a gluten-free diet. The class is provided at no cost for new members of the CCA along with family members or a friend. The two hour class covers what to eat and what not to, where to shop, where to dine and generally how to live your new gluten-free life. The class orients and assures new members that they are not alone in making this huge adjustment. Led by knowledgeable local volunteers who have been through the same experience and will help you survive this transition. Contact us today to register for the upcoming session.

We wish to express sincere appreciation to Jessalyn O’Donnell,Thrifty Foods’ Registered Dietitian, who was instrumental in arranging to make the very comfortable classroom at Thrifty's available for this purpose and for Thrifty's generous ongoing support to celiacs and those with gluten sensitivity.
