At Quest Food Management Services, we have been providing fresh, high-quality food and intensely personal service for over 30 years. Our Food Philosophy guides our approach to wholesome, scratch-made food, and our culinary leaders deliver tailored dining experiences to the unique needs of each community we serve. Driven by our unparalleled responsiveness to feedback, we crave being challenged to think outside of the box.

 

Quest is committed to offering a variety of healthful options. All of our meals feature lean proteins, whole grains, healthy fats and a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

AllergensFood Allergy Disclaimer

Due to the handcrafted nature of our menu items, our kitchens which share cooking and preparation areas, and our reliance on suppliers for accurate information, we cannot eliminate the risk of cross-contact or guarantee that any item is free of any allergen. There is a possibility that suppliers of the commercial foods we use can change the formulation or substitute ingredients at any time, without notice. To that end, we make every attempt to identify ingredients and menu items that contain the 8 major allergens (milk, eggs, soybeans, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts). The allergen information provided is up-to-date to the best of our knowledge and is based entirely on the information provided by our suppliers. We also make every effort to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies.

 

Homewood-Flossmoor High School consults individually with customers whom have food allergies to minimize allergic reactions. Prior to consuming menu items, individuals with life-threatening food allergies should confirm the ingredient information on the actual label of the product. If a customer decides that the menu item is safe on any given day, that decision is entirely their responsibility. Homewood-Flossmoor High School will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at Homewood-Flossmoor High School. No allergen information should ever be considered a guarantee, but simply a best faith effort to serve our customers.

 

Customers with food allergies are encouraged to contact Food Service Director  Bryan Matthews at  [email protected] or call the kitchen office phone at 708-335-5557 for additional information and/or support.
