          My daughter has life threatening food allergies to nuts, sesame (and their oils) and peas. (1). Can we speak with the chefs so they are aware of this so that she is only served meals that are safe for her. (2). Are we able to ship to Kapama Karula a box of canned or pre-packaged food that are safe for her and which she is comfortable with.
