Penn State College Celiac Support Group’s Food Faire 2011

It’s always great when people proactively celebrate and educate others about the gluten free life, and that’s exactly what Penn State’s Celiac Support Group is doing with its 2011 Food Faire.  It’s sure to be a good time with lots of food – if you’re going to be around central Pennsylvania, check it out and tell us about all the fun!  Below is some information on the Food Faire from Heidi Watson, president of the Celiac Support Group.


Information for Attendees:

This year, for the first time ever, local Celiacs and residents of central PA will be able to attend the Centre Area Gluten Free Food Faire to learn about products and services for individuals with celiac disease/gluten intolerance and we anticipate a great turnout! The State College Celiac Support Group is sponsoring a food expo, so it will also be a terrific chance to try new foods!

Admission will be $3 per person. There will be a Celiac 101 Session at 1 pm and a Restaurant Manager Awareness Session at 2 pm. There will also be door prizes and a silent auction!


For Vendors:

This year we expect a large turnout for our Food Faire, and would like to invite you to be a part of this exciting experience with us. This is a terrific chance to market to your target audience in Central Pennsylvania and show customers what your company and products are about.  We only have 30 exhibit tables so reserve your table early!  If you would like more information and a registration form please contact the State College Celiac Support Group at
