As I started packing up for my move to Dallas, one of the things I was curious about was the gluten free food community in my home town. There had been a few restaurants pop up with allergy friendly menus but I was still on the fence. How would it compare to my beloved DC?
As soon as I saw an ad for the Dallas Gluten Free Food Expo I started getting excited. I knew that this would be a perfect opportunity to network, chat with reps from my favorite food companies, and get a feel for the gluten free and allergy communities in Dallas.
I spent my first couple of hours volunteering with Udi’s in my role as a brand ambassador. It was incredibly fun to chat with folks who stopped by the table, hear about their love of Udi’s products, and spend time with the lovely Regan who works for Udi’s.
After, my dad met me at the expo (he eats gluten free too and hadn’t been to one of these events before!) for some sampling and exploring. There were so many products and companies there; I visited with some old favorites and discovered new ones too! It was a great experience and I was glad to do some networking for my future business in addition to trying amazing new foods.
Points to Dallas for hosting this event and bring GF folks out of the wood works from across the city, state, and the South!
