Gluten free emergency food

Gluten free care package for Joplin

After seeing pics of food going to Joplin tornado survivors (MREs, pop tarts, cereal bars, and canned ravioli), I asked the Ozarks Food Harvest if they needed gluten free donations too. Their answer, yes!   Ozarks Food Harvest needs gluten free non-perishables and diabetic-friendly items as well.

As noted on their Facebook page, Joplin is overwhelmed with unsolicited donations.  They need supplies, of course, but FEMA is requesting that all donations go to the Springfield address below.

Where: Ozarks Food Harvest, 2810 N Cedarbrook Ave, Springfield, MO 65803

Here are some of the items I included in the gluten free care package above:

Another way to help: follow the Gluten Free Joplin blog written by the Southwest Missouri Celiac Support Group leader in Joplin, Rita Greenstreet.  Contact Rita at glutenfreejoplin@gmail.com if you’re interested in donating products directly to them.  Thanks for spreading the word!

Want to donate to the next care package headed out on Tuesday?  Free Range Cookies will be collecting gluten free non-perishable foods Wednesday through Friday from 12-6pm and Saturday from 12-3pm.

Edited to add: there’s a gluten free food drive happening in Kansas City, MO too.  Details at Johnna’s 52 Sweets!

You can contact Rita, the Celiac Support Group leader in Joplin, at glutenfreejoplin@gmail.com

  5. This is wonderful! Do you have a paypal address where I can send money to help out?

    • No, but here are a couple of ways you can put that money to use.

      1. Follow the Gluten Free Joplin blog written by the Southwest Missouri Celiac Support Group leader in Joplin, Rita Greenstreet. Contact Rita at glutenfreejoplin@gmail.com if you’re interested in donating products directly to the support group.

      2. Ozarks Food Harvest is also very happy to receive gluten free non-perishables at this address: Ozarks Food Harvest, 2810 N Cedarbrook Ave, Springfield, MO 65803

      You can either purchase gluten free items off Amazon and ship to Joplin or go shopping locally and fill a large flat rate box from the post office with non-perishables. Thanks for asking!
