News 12 CT followed Kate Scarlata, a registered dietician, on a mission to End Hunger Pain. The Boston native is making stops at food pantries and other non-profits along the East Coast, including Food Rescue U.S. and Person-to-Person.
“We are bringing specialized foods, gluten free foods for individuals with celiacs disease and low FODMAP foods – which is a low fermentable carbohydrate for people with IBS,” Scarlata says. She says the cost of gluten free crackers or bread is on average two to three times more expensive for those suffering with digestive disorders, and it is a financial burden for people who are struggling to feed their families.
P2P was happy to host Kate and Food Rescue at our Stamford warehouse with site and food program manager Rick Nixon.
