When Miami resident Aaron Kredi was diagnosed in 2007 with celiac disease he was just 7 years old. Since then, he has worked many service hours advocating for newly diagnosed children in South Florida who must change their diets to only gluten-free food.
Now 17 and a senior at American Heritage School, Aaron is especially motivated by those with the disease who depend on donations from food banks.
When he started working with the Jewish Community Services Kosher Food Bank in North Miami Beach, he noticed that there were few choices for residents with celiac disease.
