Beginning in August, Lab’s food services, including the cafeteria, coffee shop and catering services, will be provided by Quest Food Management instead of Aramark, according to a message sent to the Lab Schools community May 25. Quest will conduct interactive surveys in the coming months to customize their food service to best meet the needs of the Lab community, the message said.

“We wanted a food service program that closely aligns to the mission and values of our community,” Colleen Coyle, director of family life programs, said. “We wanted to bring in a vendor that had the flexibility to serve our community needs.”

Details about changes in the FreedomPay program and lunch-ordering process will be shared by late summer.

Quest will be a temporary food provider for the 2018-19 school year. Ms. Coyle will lead a search for a permanent replacement through a comprehensive proposal process.
