    Food Allergy Disclaimer
    Quest Food Management 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.

    Deerfield and Highland Park High Schools 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 foods 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. Deerfield and
    Highland Park High Schools will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods
    consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at Deerfield and Highland
    Park High Schools.

    Students with food allergies are encouraged to contact Deerfield’s Food Service Manager, Edgar Posadas
    at eposadas@questfms.com and Highland Park Food Service Manager, Dan Bicouvaris at
    dbicouvaris@questfms.com for additional information and/or support.

    Sourcing Locally
