An orthodox kosher diet or a vegan diet are capable of satisfying
these requirements. [I have no idea if there is a sufficient orthodox
jewish population in the area in which Debconf will be held to have
meat that has been butchered in the Orthodox.]

Someone who will go into anaphylaxis[1] upon the ingestion of nuts
will need to be extra careful; even foods that are prepared in the
presence of nuts can cause an onset of a serious allergic reaction.
[They should be carrying epinephrine or whatever their doctor has
advised them to take in case they accidentally injest some.]

effect is typically asphyxia.
