Our Food Allergy Disclaimer
Due to the handcrafted nature of our menu items, our kitchens which share cooking and preparation areas, and our reliance on suppliers for accurate information, we cannot eliminate the risk of cross-contact or guarantee that any item is free of any allergen. There is a possibility that suppliers of the commercial foods we use can change the formulation or substitute ingredients at any time, without notice. To that end, we make every attempt to identify ingredients and menu items that contain the 8 major allergens (milk, eggs, soybeans, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts). The allergen information provided is up-to-date to the best of our knowledge and is based entirely on the information provided by our suppliers. We also make every effort to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies.

Benet Academy consults individually with students who have food allergies to minimize allergic reactions. Please be advised that our menu items may contain allergens, may have come in contact with items containing allergens, and there is always a risk of contamination or cross-contamination. There is also a possibility that manufacturers of the commercial foods we use could change the formulation or substitute at any time, without notice.

Customers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. Benet Academy and Quest Food Management Services, Inc. will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to food consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at Benet Academy. 
Students with food allergies are encouraged to contact Food Service Director, Phyllis Bell at or call the office at (630) 719-2830
