Beyond Celiac Blogger Ambassador Taylor Miller of GlutenAway started a fund to support a new initiative to help people navigate the gluten-free diet.
Beyond Celiac is happy to support our Blogger Ambassador and celiac disease advocate Taylor Miller of GlutenAway in his new initiative to start Sample Saturdays in Tampa, Florida. Check out Taylor’s proposed plan below.
The following content was contributed by Taylor Miller. This event is not sponsored by Beyond Celiac.
Imagine a themed event where you can sample gluten-free products prepared in recipes, watch live cooking demos, receive a cookbook and products, and interact with a hundred people who are gluten-free just like you. Expos are a great way to do this. But with our Sample Saturdays, we give people the option to attend these events every single month in Tampa, Florida. If you don't live in the area, that's ok! We'll be broadcasting these events, live, for everyone in the U.S. to see from home.
How Sample Saturdays Are Different:
Sample Saturdays have eight interactive stations focused on tasting and education. We have a fully interactive kitchen where we show you how to make recipes using new gluten-free products. Attendees learn how to use products in their day-to-day lifestyle in an environment that is social, interactive, and less overwhelming than traditional expos.
How YOUR Contributions Will Be Used:
Right now we currently have the space, design, products, and even some attendees in place! Contributions will go towards building out our kitchen space. Counter-tops, kitchenware, lounging for attendees, and utensils is all that we need! Your donations will allow us to complete the idea that we started and get this event ready for gluten-free families in the area. Contribute to the KickStarter here.
When is the deadline:
Our first event is August 27th. We need your help to get this funding by August 14th.
