Menus with Culinary Suite

Culinary Suite is a food management software solution that Quest uses to build and display menus. The software provides nutritional analysis and allergen tracking for all items we prepare, ensuring the health and safety of the school community.



Food Allergy Disclaimer

Quest Food Management Services, Inc. makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. Every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies.

The dining team consults individually with students whom have food allergies to minimize allergic reactions. Please be advised that our menu items may contain allergens, may have come in contact with items containing allergens, and there is always a risk of contamination or cross-contamination. There is also a possibility that manufacturers of the commercial food we use could change the formulation or substitute at any time, without notice.

Customers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. CCSD 181 will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at CCSD 181.

Students with food allergies are encouraged to contact Food Service Director, Laura Allgaier, at laura.allgaier@questfms.com.


The top eight allergens in each menu item will be displayed at points of service and sale in the cafeteria.
