  1. The only place that I could find that is offering GLUTEN FREE stuffing is Lukes, and that’s in S.F. I’m in Oakland. If anyone knows of a place near Oakland that will offer a gluten-free stuffing option, I’d sure like to know about it! Can’t BELIEVE it hasn’t occurred to any of these places that there might be people looking to order pre-made holiday meals who will have gluten-intolerant guests!
