Whole Foods Team Member Education

Elbowbumpkid Inc facilitated a discussion at Whole Foods in Glastonbury on celiac disease and T1D. Team members learned how they can impact and educate newly diagnosed celiac families and help them adapt to their new diet with the vast gluten free offerings sold by Whole Foods. Team members also learned why families with T1D may be reading carb counts or products in the store and why nutrition matters for families. 

Whole Foods recently provided Elbowbumpkid Inc with a $2000 grant to support additional programs for families with T1D and Celiac Disease in 2024.
