AllergyEats once again proudly supports Gluten Intolerance Group’s Chef-to-Plate campaign
May is national Celiac Awareness Month and once again the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) is running their incredibly successful Chef-to-Plate Campaign. This campaign, “Chef to Plate – Celebrating Restaurants Serving Up Gluten-Free Awareness,” is designed to spread awareness of celiac disease and gluten intolerances through restaurants that already have a gluten-free menu and have a solid working understanding of how to treat gluten-free menu orders.
Last year, over 400 restaurants participated by displaying posters and setting up table tents during Celiac Awareness Month (May). The total reach of these 400 restaurants was over 3.9 million individuals! This year, GIG has already signed up over 800 restaurants! Clearly, this is a program that restaurants want to be a part of – to show their commitment to accommodating gluten-free diners. We applaud the Gluten Intolerance Group and all the participating restaurants, and we’re proud to be a partner in this program.
You can find more information about this program, as well as a list of participating restaurants, on GIG’s home page at www.gluten.net. In addition, AllergyEats is once again helping support restaurant members of this program by displaying a Chef-to-Plate logo in the Restaurant Information column on search results pages.
AllergyEats also displays another logo next to restaurants who are certified under GIG’s Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP). In combination, we hope to highlight those restaurants with a commitment to serving individuals living a gluten-free lifestyle. And look for another similar partnership to be announced in the near future!
While we believe sharing restaurant certifications, allergen lists, gluten-free menus, and other information is very valuable to AllergyEats users, there is still no replacement for the real-world reality check provided by your restaurant ratings. So, please take a minute to go to AllergyEats (www.allergyeats.com) and rate any restaurant experiences you’ve had recently. Each rating only requires answering three multiple choice questions and can take less than a minute. The combination of everyone’s ratings continues to help AllergyEats become something even more powerful, more useful, and more special for our food allergy and intolerance community. Thank you for your support!
