The WNY Gluten Free Diet Support Group typically (but not always) meets one Saturday a month from 10:00 to 11:30 AM. The usual meeting location is Mount Mercy Academy, 88 Red Jacket Parkway, just off Abbott Road, close to Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo. The meeting room is in the dining hall located in the lower level of the school. All meetings offer special counseling, ability of dues paid members to purchase deeply discounted books and borrow educational materials from the honor system lending library, and a sampling of GF goodies prepared by Group members and donated from vendors.
Wegman's Food Markets provides a complimentary grocery bag of GF food products for individuals recently diagnosed with CD and who are first time meeting attendees. Hope to see you there!
Let us know if you are new to our group. We would love to meet you!
