I am sure there is, however, AFAIK, this would break the RFC compliance
qmail has. You might just want to try changing the address to
food_bev [at] remote or food_and_deb [at] remote or something similar.

Subject: ampersand "&" in email address
I'm seeing the following problem in the log files (minor changes
to protect the innocent and guilty):
info msg 1966555: bytes 468716 from <Food&Bev [at] remote> qp 27994 uid
info msg 1968033: bytes 223 from <food\@local.emailserver.com> qp 28003
delivery 934057: deferral:
sh:_bev [at] remote:_command_not_found/Aack,_child_crashed._(#4.3.0)/
So, qmail is separating the message delivery into being from
"food" at the host/domain name of the local qmail server, AND from "bev"
at the actual sender's host/domain name.
It is, essentially, splitting the sender address at the
ampersand "&" and trying to send to the resulting two addresses.
Is there a fix for this so qmail can handle it like any other
