The Gluten Intolerance Group’s annual gluten-free awareness campaign for restaurants will take place in May, National Celiac Awareness Month. Entering its 6th year, the Chef to Plate campaign has reached millions of people annually.
This awareness campaign was initiated by Cynthia Kupper, GIG’s Executive Director. The campaign started in 2009 with 143 restaurants and has grown significantly each year. In 2013, more than 1300 restaurants joined GIG’s efforts to help spread awareness of gluten-related disorders around the world. Chef to Plate was inaugurated in Turkey in 2010 and several restaurants in Istanbul have joined the campaign each year. Restaurants in Canada and Italy have also participated since then.
For the month of May, GIG asks participating restaurants to post educational materials (in the form of posters and table-tents, which are provided free of charge) in their establishments to help educate and promote awareness of gluten-related disorders. Restaurants do not need to go through a certification process in order to join the campaign.
If you’d like to volunteer in helping locate restaurants which may be interested in joining the campaign or have a restaurant interested in participating, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and use the subject line “Chef to Plate.”
Please help support this growing campaign by dining at these restaurants.
