New Members

Are you newly diagnosed and confused about what is safe to eat? CCA Members are welcome to a free 'peer counselling session'. Our counsellors, Eileen Bottos and Wanda Wyllie-Parsons, who are experienced celiacs with over 15 years combined experience, will meet with you one-on-one to advise you on what is safe to eat and what is not, how to bake with gluten-free flours, how to avoid cross-contamination, set up your kitchen, etc. Call Eileen at 767-4958 (or email eabottos@hotmail.com) or Wanda at 767-8290 (or email wonky@tbaytel.net) for an appointment.
