What extra precautions are you taking to ensure food is prepared in a manner that prevents the spread of COVID-19? All areas have additional cleaning protocols in place. For example, all vehicles are cleaned after each use, and staff must complete a health check list each day prior to beginning of shift
What food safety measures do you take for people who have allergies? All allergen meals are prepared first. And surfaces are cleaned after each allergen-designated item is made.
How do you accommodate customers who have dietary restrictions or allergies. Through UBC Food Service's many years of delivering food and serving events, and our allergen trained staff, we can certainly accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies. Just be as detailed and specific as possible when you place your order.
