A trained chef is able upon request to prepare meals for individuals with specific allergies and other dietary sensitivities. Questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers.
Disclaimer: Separate equipment, storage areas, utensils and preparation areas minimize, but do not totally eliminate the chances of gluten and allergens in the Simple Servings foods.
