Well, good news! There’s help on the way to help you break free of the dietary rut you’ve been in due to having to remove wheat products from your meals.

Next Saturday, Dec. 5, the student interns of Saguache Works will be presenting a Gluten-Free Social, featuring special dishes and recipes with ingredients available locally. The event will take place from 4 – 5:30 p.m. at the 4th Street Food Store in downtown Saguache.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own gluten-free dish or recipe, or just your appetite! The program will also have samples from the store and volunteers will be making dishes. Everyone is welcome!

The community is encouraged to come and support this student-driven program. They’ve done a great job educating the public about what it means to be gluten-free and how you can still make delicious, nutritious meals while avoiding wheat products.

The 4th Street Food Store, located at 404 4th Street in downtown Saguache, supports local farmers and ranchers, while making fresh and healthy foods accessible and affordable to low-income families.  

Check out their bulk foods section at the back of the store and talk to the Food Store Staff if there are products you’d like to see made available or to discuss bulk ordering.
