November has arrived and that means it is time for the 2nd Annual Gluten Free Holiday Food Drive to benefit the Tampa Gluten Free Food Pantry at Metropolitan Ministries!  Please help GF families in need to be able to have traditional family holiday dinners this season by donating GF non-perishable foods that would be served at a holiday meal.  This GF Holiday Food Drive will be for all of November and December.  Please bring all food donations to the blue food barrels at Nutrition S'Mart of Carrollwood on N.
