Hi Cara - this is a situation were brutal honesty might be the best policy. I'd approach the team leader and tell them the truth - you have a medical condition that makes it extremely difficult to eat at restaurants.

If there is a local restaurant where you could find safe meals, you might ask that they make that the designated lunch spot.

If you know the restaurant they're going to, you could call them ask their policy for bringing in your own food. I'd explain you're with a group, and everyone will be ordering, but you have a medical condition that forces you to bring your own food. If you've spoken to an owner or manager in advance, you might be able to bring your own lunch without problem.

There might also be a nice place where you could all eat lunch together (a park, etc.), but they bring food to go from the restaurant they like and you bring your own.

Please keep us posted.
