FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 20, 2011 – Fort Collins, CO – Meetup.com group Gluten Free Living in Northern Colorado is hosting a Meet and Greet with Gluten-Free Treats Thursday, June 2 at 7 pm held at Everyday Joe’s Coffee House (144 S. Mason St., Fort Collins, CO 80524). The Meetup is a casual gathering, open to anyone interested in sampling gluten-free desserts, exchanging recipes, and connecting with other community members who are gluten-free. You don’t have to have celiac disease or be gluten-free to attend.

"By building a community of support there is no reason why individuals need to sacrifice the foods they love," says Sarah Myers, group founder. "We hope members will exchange recipes and resources to overcome dietary restrictions.”

People with celiac disease, or those who are experienced in the area of gluten-sensitivity are invited to bring a homemade gluten-free dessert item, if they wish, with 35 copies of their recipe to share. Coffee and tea are available at Everyday Joe's.
