She’s about to take a trip to Portland, Oregon, for a gluten-free holiday.
That’s because a gluten free flour box is going to be part of the celebrations.
The Flour Box at the Northgate Mall, a gift shop for food, is part of a gluten friendly program for children in the Seattle area.
The Flour box will serve gluten free bread, cake, cookies, pasta, crackers, cupcakes, pies and more, and will offer gluten free coffee and tea.
The program started this summer and will continue through the end of November, said Lisa Miller, marketing manager for the Northside Flour store.
The Northside store has been selling the flour box since July, when a customer noticed she had a box of cookies in the kitchen.
She asked her mother, a gluten intolerant, to get her some, and Miller said the store had to take it off shelves.
Miller said a few months later the customer returned and said she wanted a new one.
The customer also brought her a cupcake, which was gluten free.
Now the store has a new gluten free customer every other day.
Miller told the Oregonian she doesn’t want to be the one who’s telling people to stop buying flour boxes.
She said the program started with her mother but has now spread to other families.
