If anyone needs Oat Matza for Passover

"Oat Matza Central!!"
It's Time to OrderGluten-Free Oat Matza for Pesach 2008!
Great news! Delicious, crispy, fresh Oat Matza is on it's way to America. It's time to place your orders. Even better news; there is no price increase this year! Here is information you need to consider before placing your order:
This Matza is very Shemurah Matza.
There are 9 Shabbat & Yom Tov meals (including Seudah Shlishit) this year.
There are 4 days of Chol Hamoed, albeit the 4th day is Erev Shabbat.
There are approximately 10-13 sheets of Matza per box (machine-made).
Hand Matza comes 3 pieces per box for the same price as a box of Machine Matza.
If you plan to use Oat Matza to make Hamotzei during the year, please count the number of Shabbat and Yom Tov meals for the entire year, as there is no guarantee that there will be any left over. (It so happened that this year there were only 6 cases left in the country at the end of the summer. Once I sent out an email, it was sold-out in 4 days.)
Matza Meal comes in 1-pound boxes. I am receiving half of the country's shipment. Many of you request more during the year. This is the only time to get it. Please plan your order accordingly.
Prices:Matza Meal in 1-pound boxes- $12 per boxHand-made Matza (3 pieces- round)- $27.50 per boxMachine Matza (10-13 pieces approximately)- $27.50 per boxI accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. If you are comfortable sending your credit card information through email, I will need the number, the expiration date, and the 3-digit security code found on the back of the card. If you are not comfortable with this, please ask me to call for that information in your email order.

Shipping:Please remember, I am a private person who facilitates Oat Matza because my son needed it many years ago. I cannot begin to second-guess UPS, so I will not run your credit card until I have received the UPS bill, which is after you will have received your Matza. If you live in an out-lying area (off the beaten track) it will cost more in shipping.Very important: If you live in a multi-unit dwelling, even if you think "everyone" knows where you live, please be sure to put an apartment number or a floor level or some type of identifying information on your address.Also, if you are having your order delivered to a building that can be considered commercial, please let me know, as you are charged differently by UPS for commercial versus residential.

How to Order:PLEASE EMAIL YOUR COMPLETE ORDER TO ME AT OatMatza@gmail.comI will need:
Your name
Your phone numbers, including cell, where I can reach you if I have a question.
Your complete shipping address, including zip codes. (please mark if commercial)
Your billing address to the credit card you are using if it is different than the shipping address.
Complete credit card information as noted above, unless I have your credit card on file, or you are a new customer and/or wish me to call for information.

I will begin shipping orders as soon as I receive the shipment, so the sooner you place your order, the sooner I will be able to ship it!

If you know of someone with a gluten allergy, please forward this email to them! If they do now have email, you can give them my number: 410-358-9580. However, due to the 500+ phone calls I've made in previous years, I would like to conduct as much Oat Matza "business" through email as possible. I will miss speaking to each and every one of you over the phone, but I'm glad I am able to get you the information I have ASAP and save time as well.

What a mitzvah this is! I will pass this on to a couple of friends of mine who are celiac (don't know how observant they are, though) if you don't mind. We're in Los Angeles.

Where is it manufactured?

As far as I know it's manufactured in England.
For sure Karen Beleck ships to LA, she will ship anywhere in the country.
It's a fantastic mitzvah she does to arrange for this; it's a lot of work and she makes very little profit off of it; she makes the arrangement for all of the oat matzah that comes to the US and many people order cases to last throughout the year, especially of the matzah meal which can be used yearlong for "breading" but to make it so that so many people who otherwise wouldn't get to fulfill the mitzvah of matzah is huge.
