Coeliac Awareness Week – 6-12th June 2022

blank

Coeliac Awareness Week runs from the 6th to the 12th June and this year’s theme is ‘Thriving: Living Your Best Coeliac Life.’

The aim of this year’s campaign is to raise awareness of how people with coeliac disease can really thrive and live their best life while eating safe gluten-free food. The theme, ‘Thriving: Living Your Best Coeliac Life’ aims to inspire those living with coeliac disease* to live well every day and build a greater understanding of the need for gluten-free food to be safe and accessible for people with coeliac disease. Throughout the week we aim to raise awareness and educate New Zealanders that coeliac disease is a serious inflammatory condition but with the right support, people with coeliac disease can truly thrive.

We will also be sharing how our Crossed Grain Logo allows people with coeliac disease to choose safe gluten-free foods and shining a light on how the hospitality sector can cater to people with coeliac disease with the support of the Coeliac NZ Dining Out Programme. This Coeliac Awareness Week we encourage you to support our partners who are part of these important initiatives by choosing Crossed Grain Logo products and eating at Dining Out Programme certified cafés and restaurants. Coeliac Awareness Week is an important campaign in the calendar for all New Zealanders, especially those living with coeliac disease, your families, and friends. We encourage our members to get involved in local events, activities, and conversations about coeliac disease. To stay updated on our latest activities connect with us on the Coeliac NZ Facebook page.

*Includes non-coeliac gluten sensitivity

Members are reminded and encouraged to register to attend our Annual General Meeting via zoom on Saturday 11 June at 10 am please email Fred at admin@coeliac.org.nz and you will receive a complimentary copy of our wellbeing journal and go in the draw to win a prize.
