The Gluten Intolerance Group of Greater Houston


The GIG of Greater Houston was officially launched in January 2013 with the intent of offering support to those living with gluten intolerance, celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and other gluten sensitivities or loving after those who are.  We strive to offer support through services and programs that positively promote healthy lives at a local and national level. Our vision is to create a united gluten intolerant community in which all persons feel they are healthy, are positively nurtured to live life to the fullest, and are involved as contributing citizens.

As a new branch, we are actively establishing our self by reaching out to individuals, organizations, and companies who share our same core values of: caring, compassion, honesty, transparency, creativity, positive attitude, humor, joy, knowledge, being informed, open-mindedness, and acceptance.  If you are interested in joining us in our efforts, please contact our leadership team.
