“After years of complaining of stomach aches and refusing to eat, our 4-year-old son was diagnosed with celiac disease. I was relieved to have a diagnosis, but overnight our food costs tripled.”

Although finding food that met his new dietary requirements was not hard, it was a huge financial burden. Jennifer, a teacher, and her husband, who works in construction, took on extra jobs and
juggled childcare between them to make ends meet.

Her story is not unusual. Food costs for special diets can be twice as expensive as regular food. Food Equality Initiative is a beacon of hope for those struggling with the higher food costs for their diet-treated illnesses. Over the coming months, we’re sharing our story and how we help people like Jennifer navigate the storm of their new diagnosis.

Our 3 Pillars

ACCESS

We facilitate access to safe, healthy, free-from food by subsidizing a direct-to-door grocery delivery service for food insecure individuals and families.

EDUCATION

We educate the public through the production of nutritionally focused educational materials, such as our magazine, podcast, and recipe guides.

ADVOCACY

We advocate for traditionally
under-represented populations in healthcare on a regional and national scale.
