Kitchens with Confidence makes every effort to ensure improved access to allergen and gluten-free options by recognizing and providing certifications to establishments that go above and beyond. KwC offers hands-on review and analysis of your food service operation from loading dock to table top.

In the past years, Kitchens with Confidence completed these audits in conjunction with FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education). We anticipate those with special dietary needs will first look for accreditation prior to dining anywhere.
