Whether you are celiac, gluten sensitive or have made a dietary choice to limit or cut out gluten completely, it’s always nice to have a community to inform and support you on your journey. The Gluten Free Exchange is aiming to do just that! This robust website has just recently launched and is designed to build a community for those interested in gluten free, where they will bring the best of what’s on the web, including webinars, articles, resources and of course, taste-bud watering recipes to try at home. And they’re just getting started! Check out their website, become a member for free and get all the support you need for your gluten free journey.

Oh, and did we mention, they’re the newest member of One Percent For Hunger! So in case you needed another reason to check them out, supporting them means you’re making a positive difference in the fight against hunger. It’s a kindness win!

Cascade Crew 1We are so pleased to welcome our newest Member company to the One Percent for Hunger family, Cascadia Container Line! I had the pleasure of popping into their offices in Burnaby today to meet the enthusiastic crew, shake some hands and snap a photo before the busy office got back to the business of providing shipping solutions for customers around the globe. It’s not hard to see why exceptional service and integrity are hallmarks of the Cascadia brand. From the deepest reaches of our hearts we thank the Cascadia team for recognizing the importance of humanitarian giving and for making it a part of each and every one of their business transactions.


Here’s looking at you, new website!

It was time for an overhaul and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the enormous amount of creative genius put forth by our website design guru and all around swell guy, Tyler Nixon of Nixon Creative. If a picture can tell a story, well then it’s written all over our faces. We’re truly tickled with the results! Tyler is a master at his craft and barely broke a sweat in his efforts to get our site up and running before him and wife Julie welcomed a wee wonder into their lives. Dedication knows no bounds! We raise a bottle (of the baby variety, of course!) to you, Tyler, in thanks and admiration for all the work you’ve done for us and send out a big bowl of love to you, Julie, and little boy blue, Oliver.
