Special Dietary Needs at Catered Events
Ever After Events Catering is committed to meeting the needs of guests who have special dietary restrictions (such as a food allergy, intolerance or other medically restricted diet) and recognizes that many of our guests may also adhere to a vegetarian or vegan diet. With your help we can make this event memorable and delicious for everyone.
Ever After Events coordinators are able to safely and reasonably guide event planners in booking events and making menu selections which can accommodate their guests. In most instances, food allergies and intolerance can be managed independently at events, however please note:
- Ever After Events catering does not label all allergens at catered functions.
- With advance notice, Ever After Events catering can generally accommodate guests who must avoid the most common food allergens, as well as gluten.
- Ever After Events catering is unable to accommodate a guests individual dietary preferences during an event. Dietary preferences can be made directly to the event planner. It is the event planner's decision to modify the event menu based on a guest's preference.
- Ever After Events catering is unable to accommodate for therapeutic diets (i.e. diabetic diet, cardiac diet, renal diet, etc.)
Peanut and tree nut allergies are some of the most common allergies reported. Ever After Events catering is NOT a peanut or tree nut free environment. While we do not use peanuts or tree nuts in the majority of our recipes, we do process nuts in our bakeshop, which creates the potential for cross contact and contamination. In addition, there is always the potential for food manufacturers to change their formularies. Many food manufacturers also label for: “may contain (particular) allergen”. We do not control for or carry over labeling of products by manufacturers that bear “may contain” or “processed in a facility that also processes” type of labeling.
