Omaha, Nebraska’s Amanda and Mike Overfield are seeking funding via Kickstarter to open a vegan, gluten-free bakery. The couple started their project, “Gluten Free in the Great Plains,” more than a year ago, after Amanda was diagnosed with a gluten allergy. They have since been selling their cupcakes and other treats at farmers’ markets and fulfilling phone orders. If they reach their $5,000 goal, they will be able to move into a commercial space and begin selling their treats in stores. The money will also cover the first six months’ rent, commercial-grade supply purchases, and other startup costs.
