Appetite for Awareness, a Gluten Free Festival, Hits Philly This Sunday

Appetite for Awareness, the signature event of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, is coming to Philadelphia on Sunday September 23rd from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Strawbridge Building. The event is in its eighth year and continually brings together physicians and chefs from the area’s top restaurants to serve up information and gluten-free dishes.

Restaurants like Melograno, Alma de Cuba, El Rey, Rouge, and Spiga will participate in a “Gluten-Free Cooking Spree” in addition to other attractions like chef demonstrations, a children’s pavilion, and a Gluten-Free Beer Garden for watching the Eagles game (they really have thought of everything!).

Tickets include unlimited gluten-free food and drink and advanced tickets are available online: $50 for adults, $20 for children, and $125 for a family of four. Tickets will be available at the door for a higher price. Appetite for Awareness raises funds for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, their educational programs and free patient resources.
