On October 14, we packed Lexington's Bell House to near capacity for the official launch of regular monthly public meetings offering multiple resources, information and support to those on the gluten free diet. And we kicked it off in style! Emmy-nominated WKYT-TV evening news anchor Amber Philpott was announced as our official spokesperson. Tables full of gluten free food were provided by GFL volunteers, as well as sponsoring vendors such as Puccini's Pizza and Katz Gluten Free Bakery.
We also unveiled our plans for South Eastern Gluten Free Expo 2014, Lexington’s first-ever national scale gluten free vendor fair, to be held at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center in October 2014, and there were plenty of fun door prizes from sponsors including Whole Foods Market, Johnny Carino's Italian Restaurant, Bourbon & Toulouse Caijun Restaurant, Outback Steakhouse, and Chipotle's Mexican Grill.
