In 2007, we asked the FDA to standardize labeling for gluten-free foods. It has yet to happen. This year on May 4, in honor of Celiac Awareness Month, The American Celiac Disease Alliance and leaders in the gluten-free community will host the Gluten-Free Labeling Summit in Washington, DC to get this task moving forward and completed. Even if you can’t make it to the summit, you can help in other ways, by writing a letter to the FDA, signing the petition, donating, or just spreading the word.

And remember that you can encourage your friends and family to take the gluten-free challenge May 21 and 22.
