Snacking trays make easy finger foods for a party safe
Finger food does not have the best reputation amongst the food allergy community due to cross-contact. Plus, now that we are also much more virus/germ aware, finger food does not seem like the most delicious way to eat. There is a great solution to this, socially distanced snacking trays.
