You can use mineral oil for finish and tide bond glue is food grade glue. Not sure about any food safe epoxy.

No food safe epoxy for cutting boards. Just use mineral oil.

Walnut oil works well for things like that. You can get it at the grocery store. Mineral oil won’t dry, but walnut oil will.

Be careful with walnut oil on cutting boards. This is bad news for someone with a nut allergy. I would go with mineral oil as we’ll.
