SKINNYPIZZA® is pleased to announce a new sponsorship with the Celiac Disease Foundation, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all those affected by celiac disease and educating the public on the seriousness of the disease.

Celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine, affects 1 in 100 people worldwide and often goes undiagnosed. It is estimated that 3 million Americans live with the disease, but 2.5 million do not know they have it. In support of the Foundation, SKINNYPIZZA® will help raise awareness of celiac disease and provide accessible, gluten-free options for those who need it most. Together, our voices are stronger and our community impact is greater.

“The Celiac Disease Foundation is pleased to work with SKINNYPIZZA®, a company that underscores our commitment to raising awareness of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity,” states Marilyn G. Geller, CEO of the Celiac Disease Foundation. “SKINNYPIZZA®’s sponsorship of the Foundation reflects their dedication to serving the celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitive community, and we are delighted about what we can accomplish with a shared vision.”

“We are very excited to be sponsoring the Celiac Disease Foundation. We look forward to supporting consumers nationwide who are following a gluten-free diet,” Joseph Vetrano, Founder and CEO of SKINNYPIZZA®, expressed. “We have perfected great-tasting, guilt-free, thin crust pizza; a pizza we proudly serve to our own families.”
