Spread the Bread! Rudi's Gluten Free Bread Coupon

Earlier this month, Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness announced their partnership in an effort to increase education and diagnosis of celiac disease through a nationwide coupon program called Spread the Bread.

For every $1 off coupon downloaded for a loaf of Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread, Rudi’s will donate $1 to support the NFCA’s CME program, up to $20,000. Coupons are available now on Rudi’s Gluten-Free’s website and Facebook page, and will remain available through February, or until the goal is reached.

I was recently given the opportunity to try all three varieties of their breads, and lemme tell you, they are wonderful. From sandwiches to toast, I found Rudi's gluten free bread to fit perfectly into my meal and I urge everyone to Spread the Bread and take advantage of downloading the coupon and supporting the NFCA's Continuing Medical Education (CME) program, a program in which NFCA teamed up with top celiac doctors nationwide to create a program that provides education for primary care physicians focused on celiac disease with the goal of improving diagnosis and management of the disease.

“Every year, millions of people suffer unnecessarily as a result of the lack of diagnosis of celiac disease,” said Alice Bast, Founder and President of NFCA. “Our mission is to decrease the amount of time it takes for someone to get diagnosed, improve quality of life, and with the support of companies like Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery, we can better reach that goal.”

“We created Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery so people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance can once again take pleasure in eating tasty and healthy breads,” said Doug Radi, vice president of marketing for Rudi’s Organic Bakery. “In addition to creating great-tasting gluten-free breads, we’re also committed to raising awareness and furthering education about celiac disease through partnerships with organizations like NFCA. The Continuing Medical Education program’s goal to teach doctors to diagnose celiac disease will greatly impact the gluten-free community.”

So go on, Spread the Bread!
