For the past 15 years, the Celiac Disease Foundation has proudly hosted a Gluten-Free EXPO in Pasadena, California. Attracting over 3,500 attendees, the CDF EXPO provided the opportunity to sample and purchase the latest and best gluten-free products from exclusive vendors. Now, to safely meet the needs of our community, the CDF EXPO is still happening – virtually – and in the form of an auction!
