Gluten And Youth Group

So here’s a funny little thing that makes a big difference: gluten.

All of the cookies, crackers, bagels, sandwiches, and pizza we give to teenagers and their families at church youth events have it. For 99% of them it’s not a problem; they hardly even know it’s there. But for an increasingly visible segment of our community, gluten is a no-go.

We’ve tried to get savvy the past year about providing gluten free food alternatives, but now we’re getting uncomfortable with the demand that places on some to self-separate. What if we went gluten free by default? How hard would that be?

Food ought to help build community,  not reinforce division.

  1. Gluten free by default is a good way to go. It’s not hard at all except pizza. You could however, get tortillas. (Corn or Gluten free flour) and let them make their own.
