GIG of South Central PA is currently undergoing an organizational transition. For Branch inquiries, please contact Bethany Trainor at firstname.lastname@example.org .
A Few Changes at GIG Southcentral PA
We will now be sending newsworthy information as it occurs strictly by email instead of a quarterly newsletter. So it is important to keep us informed of any email changes you may have. Contact: Linda Weller at 717-520-9817.
2) Medical 101 Class
Instead of quarterly classes, we have decided to provide one-on-one direct telephone assistance through a Telephone Mentor Program. For assistance in living a healthy gluten-free lifestyle, understanding gluten intolerance, and to have your questions answered, please contact Linda Weller at 717-520-9817.
All education materials will still be available at regularly scheduled programs and are available on this national GIG website under “resources”.
3) Future Program Locations
All future programs will be held at the Giant Food Store Community Room in Camp Hill (3301 Trindle Road). There will still be opportunities for gluten-free tasting and samples.
Gluten Free Holiday Desserts

Giant Food Store Community Room
3301 Trindle Road, Camp Hill
Just in time for your holiday baking! GIG of Central PA will present this class with a demonstration by Lisa Stennett, Branch Manager, sharing great advice on how to make gluten-free desserts for the holiday season. Lisa will be teaching you some of her favorite gluten free recipes that offer an alternative to the classics.
Prior to the program Madelyn Barrows, Giant Food Store nutritionist, will be providing a demo table with various gluten-free products sold in their store. In addition, our gluten-free samples volunteers, Steve and Susie Rosenberg, will still be sharing their latest treats, too.
IMPORTANT: Please only bring a GIANT shopping bag (plastic or one sold at the store) to take samples home.
Annual Holiday Luncheon & Cookie Exchange
Saturday, December 2, at 12:00 noon
Piazza Sorrento — 16 Briarcrest Sq., Hershey
Time to begin thinking about COOKIES! That’s right, it’s almost time for the Annual Holiday Luncheon and Cookie Exchange. This is one of the most popular events because participants only need to bake one type of cookie and go home with almost 20 different cookie recipes and cookies. It is great to have a variety of delicious cookies for the holidays — if they last that long!
You might want to Christmas shop first and then meet up at Piazza Sorrento for a special holiday tradition of fellowship, a delicious gluten-free meal, and our cookie exchange.
Pre-register by Sunday, November 26 with Wendi Wright:
Email: email@example.com or call 717-599-5513
After Sunday, Nov 26, Wendi will notify the group with the final count (usually about 20).
What to bring with you for the cookie exchange:
– Pre-wrap 3 to 4 gluten free cookies in small plastic baggies or you can wrap them in a more creative holiday wrap.
– One baggie of cookies for each participant.
– A sufficient quantity of your cookie recipe copies to share with others.
