Gluten Intolerance Group of Portland – gluten-free support group
The Portland Metro branch of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) is a support and educational group for people diagnosed with celiac disease, gluten-sensitivity, or any other form of gluten intolerance, and friends and relatives thereof. GIG f Portland has general meetings every second Saturday of the month, from 10-12, which offer support and information on living the gluten-free lifestyle.
