“Can’t Eat Wheat” support group meets on August 4

The Northfield area "Can't Eat Wheat" support group will celebrate summer with its annual wheat-free, gluten-free picnic on Monday, August 4, 6:30-8:00 p.m., at Oddfellows Park on Forest Ave. in Northfield. The group will meet in the Northfield Hospital Conference Center if it is raining.

All are encouraged to take a dish or two to share, with recipes, along with eating utensils and beverages. Food should contain no wheat, oats, barley, or rye.

This year, the group will be joined by the Northfield Gluten Detectives, a group that focuses on children and their families. It is a part of the Celiac Center of Minnesota and more information about that organization can be obtained from Stephanie Aman at 507-650-0160.

The Northfield "Can't Eat Wheat" group focuses on living well with celiac disease, gluten intolerance or wheat allergies. Those who are coping with this condition or are interested in learning more are welcome to attend. Families and friends are welcome. There is no cost for this program.

For additional information, contact Jody at 507-663-6071, or contact the education office at Northfield Hospital.
