Is someone in your family gluten-free? I'm looking for one or two people who might be interested in splitting shares of a bulk order of gluten-free flours--buckwheat, brown rice, etc. Most of these flours are cheaper when ordered in bulk, but often the minimum order (10-25 lbs) is too much for me to use at one time. If you would be interested in sharing the purchase of one or more flours, please let me know. I would probably order through Morning Glory in Brunswick, since it tends to be cheaper, but could easily arrange to meet you at school to give you your part if you live further south. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 725-7665.
