At least two Whole Foods events are coming up in the area shortly. One is in White Plains; the other is in downtown Manhattan.

On Wednesday, January 16, 2008, the Whole Foods Market in White Plains (110 Bloomingdale Road) will donate 5% of the day's net proceeds to the Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group (WCSSG). So if you shop there, part of the money you spend will support one of the best support groups around! From 3:00 to 7:00 pm, you can also enjoy gluten-free vendor sampling, kids' activities, and a book signing from WCSSG board member Rory Jones, co-author of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic, which is soon to be out in paperback. Other WCSSG board members will also be present.

And on Friday, January 18, 2008, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm, the Whole Foods Culinary Center on The Bowery will host a gluten-free dessert class featuring recipes for Fruit Crisp, Anti-Bread Pudding, and Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie. The cost: $55. You can make reservations here.
