    I’m pretty sure the muniffs and brownies are pre-packaged from an outside source. Gluten-free items like pasta and breadcrumbs have gotten very popular lately, typically made out of rice, so they’re easy to come by. We used to buy them all the time at Whole Foods and made our own gluten-free pasta dishes at home. I’m not sure if SFMM makes those on-site or buys pre-made portions and heats them up, but I’ll try to find out.
