    About Quest

    "Providing children nutritious foods, that fuel their learning, is our privilege. Sharing our knowledge about food and where it comes from, is our passion. Quest believes that the landscape of the “school cafeteria” is undergoing a long overdue overhaul. The variety of food, cuisine, and dining experiences children have available to them today shouldn’t stop at the doors of their school.

    We believe in offering:

    • Traditional, kid-friendly favorites, made from scratch

    • Authentic international dishes

    • Fresh, local products

    • Made-to-order menu options

    • Inviting dining environment

    • Healthy choices that are flavorful and appealing

    We believe that the food experience shouldn’t be limited to the cafeteria. Our kitchen-to-classroom approach provides educational opportunities for students to learn curriculum lessons on food science, history and agriculture, through food."
