About

Welcome to the home of the Kansas City Chapter of the Celiac Support Association. Here you will find our events calendar, local information including restaurants offering gluten-free menus, contact information for our officers, and links to other useful sites on the internet.

 

FREE MEETINGS

Regular meetings of The Kansas City Chapter of the Celiac Sprue Association take place on the second Sunday of every month from 2:30–3:30 PM at the Community Center Building, Building D, of the St. Joseph Health Center. The Health Center is located in south Kansas City near I-435 and the Missouri/Kansas state line.  We do not meet in May as the second Sunday is Mother’s Day.

FUNDRAISER

Our group is FREE to all guests.  We welcome people with celiac, gluten intolerance, those on a gluten free lifestyle, and friends and family members.  We run our organization with donations and fundraisers.  Our current fundraiser is a “The Body on Gluten” poster hand drawn by one of our members.  A small poster (11 x 17″) is $10, a medium poster (18 x 24″) is $15, and a large poster (24 x 36″) is $20.

    Hi. Another thought. I bought a magnetic ribbon from the celiaccenter.org for my car that I bought during the vendors fair Sunday. But I would rather have one from the local organization. Any chance of that happening?
