New Year News

The Happiest of New Years to you & Your Family from R.O.C.K. Charlotte!

You may have thought we had forgotten to post through the Holidays. We didn't forget
but activities took up most of the Holiday Season and now we are facing 2012 before 
we all knew it! Time flies when you're having fun!

2011 brought huge changes for the gluten free communities as awareness grew by leaps and bounds in the last year. However, a new study that was published at celiac.com lets us know that there is lots more track to cover in order to get awareness where it should be. 47% awareness in the general public just isn't enough to make our lives easier. The deer in headlights look you get sometimes while telling someone what celiac disease is or that you can't eat gluten is a far way from ending. So don your awareness attitude and spread the word to see if we can't get more public awareness in 2012!
