I cannot see why you cannot grow vegetables , If the grass has survived. With the amount of rain we have had this winter any chemicals will have been well and truly leached out.
Same with using the grass mowings in the compost heap. By the time you are ready to use the compost any problems will have long gone.
As for the veg taking up nasties from the soil, if that worries you then you should not eat any veg bought from any supermarket, ever or even from a Farmshop, unless it is sold as organic and even then possibly not.
