NFCA Announces “Serving Up Gluten-Free at Colleges & Universities” – a Webinar

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is partnering with Crunchmaster to offer another free webinar. “Serving Up Gluten-Free at Colleges & Universities” will be held on November 18, 2010 at 3:00 PM EST. The panelists for the webinar will be Chef Robert Landolphi and Amy Dunham.

Chef Robert Landolphi is a Certified Culinary Arts Instructor & Culinary Development Manager with the University of Connecticut and the author of “Gluten-Free Everyday”. Amy Dunham is a Registered Dietician for the University of Connecticut at Storrs Campus.

The 1 hour webinar is aimed at all college & university dining services staff – including dieticians & chefs. There is a growing need for gluten-free dining & availability at colleges around the US. When our kids head off to college and leave the safety of dining at home, it can often be difficult to navigate. The more awareness and education that can be offered to those in the college food services industry, the better off those college kids will be.

Crunchmaster makes some of the best gluten-free crackers on the market. I had the pleasure of sampling the crackers earlier this year and was very impressed. I need to remember to pick some up for the upcoming holidays.
