Middle School Lunch FAQ

Each day, Quest will offer selections from one or more of these a la carte stations:

Grill

Burgers, chicken sandwiches, and sliders are all favorites off the grill. We offer those as well as enhanced versions of traditional favorites -- because a cheeseburger is great, but a jalapeno bacon cheeseburger is amazing! Featuring lean 100% beef, turkey, and vegetarian options, the Grill offers something for everyone.

Crust

Pizza is not just a staple for students, it’s a Chicagoland staple! With traditional hand-tossed favorites, gourmet thin crust options, gluten-free options, calzones, and everything in between – The Crust offers more than just pizza.

Bread & Bowl

Bread & Bowl features made-to-order deli sandwiches, paninis, and homemade soups and breads. All of our sandwiches and wraps include options for students that are gluten-free. We top these options with high-quality meats and cheeses, fresh produce, and garnish with traditional and gourmet condiments.

Hemispheres

Food unites people and promotes a greater understanding of cultures that may be different than our own. And for international students, we strive to provide authentic international offerings that showcase and educate students about flavors from around the world!

Yes! A tempting assortment of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables are offered daily for students to select their own favorites -- and try new ones! The cost is included in the daily lunch price.

The cost is $4.30 per lunch. This includes the entree, the fruit/veggie bar, and choice of milk or water.

Three choices of milk will be available daily: white 1%, white skim, and chocolate. Choice of milk or water is included in the lunch price if buying the hot lunch. Otherwise it is $0.60 per carton/bottle.

Parents/guardians of students with food allergies are encouraged to contact Quest Food Service Director Lindsey Borchers via email or call (847) 962-9957 for additional information and/or support.

Students may purchase a hot lunch or a la carte items in two ways:

  1. Cash at the register or
  2. MySchoolBucks account. Students enter their ID number on a keypad at the register to check out using an account their parent/guardian has established for them in advance.

If you would like to establish or add value to your child’s lunch account, just enter the payment site on the Middle School lunch webpage or send a check to the office that can be added to the account.

If there is a problem with your student’s MySchoolBucks lunch account during the school year, please email Quest Food Service Director Lindsey Borchers or phone her at 847-962-9957 within 30 days of the occurrence so that it can be researched immediately. We now have cameras installed in the middle school lunch lines, which will help alleviate problems with erroneous purchasing. We can match up the camera time to the transaction time and identify who made the purchase.

District 64 and District 207 are two separate school districts and do not share their MySchoolBucks accounts. If your student has a balance at the end of their 8th grade year, your options are:  

  1. Request a refund through the Business Office.
  2. Request that the funds be transferred to a sibling's account.

For either request, please contact Director of Business Services Valerie Varhalla after the end of the school year.
