Auburn, WA—Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) has announced its partnership with Cutting Costs for Celiacs, a nonprofit organization that helps families below the poverty line afford gluten-free food. The partnership will make it possible to expand reach by promoting the affordable gluten-free eating initiatives through GIG’s network. To reach those populations, GIG plans to launch a variety of programs, including expanding food discounts through partnerships with brands certified by GIG’s Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).

Cutting Costs for Celiacs, founded in 2013 by celiac sufferer Lexie Van Den Heuvel, provides monthly stipends and care baskets for low-income families with children with celiac disease.

“We’re excited to partner with Lexie and her outstanding organization, which has helped many struggling families eat both safely and affordably for the past eight years,” said Channon Quinn, COO of GIG. “We look forward to working with Cutting Costs for Celiacs to expand on the impressive work of this organization that has succeeded in providing much-needed food assistance to low-income celiac-affected families.”
