Welcome to Scouts Café and The Grind.
The Scout Café is the main area to get a variety of wholesome scratch made food items. It is open at 7:00am to 9:00am for breakfast and opens back up at 10:30am until 1:00pm for lunch. You can see the monthly menu posted for food service on the Lake Forest High School website. The Grind is a full service coffee shop that also serves food. The Grind opens at 7:30am until 12:35pm.
Students will need to use their school ID to make any purchases. If a student forgets their ID, they must go to the Technology Help Desk (located in the basement) to get a new one. Replacement IDs cost $10. If a student has not yet received their student ID, they will be able to pick it up on their first day of school.
As parents, please go to www.myschoolbucks.com. This website is where you can add funds to your student’s account so they can purchase items in our two locations. You can also send a check or cash with your student and we can add it to their account at the register. There is also a help video link for first time users: www.myschoolbucks.com/ver2/help/gethelpvideos. We will accept cash and have the ability to enter the students ID number (in an emergency), but this will be at one register only. Students need to have their ID.
Parents will also be able to view the monthly menu at www.fdmealplanner.com. Menus may change, based on availability of items.
We are happy to offer options to add money to your student’s lunch account online through www.myschoolbucks.com.
See the video link below to learn how to set up automatic payments.
Parents can make secure payments online with their computer or phone, any time of the day. If your child’s lunch account balance is low, it takes just a few minutes to make an online payment using E-Check, Visa, Master, or Discover (credit/debit card). See the video link below for instructions on how to set up Low Balance E-mail Alerts.

Quest Allergen 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.
Marquette 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. Marquette will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at Marquette. 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, Jason Rosegay at firstname.lastname@example.org, 847-582-7771 or Quest District Manager Rebecca Cohen, MPH, RD, LDN, email@example.com, 630-376-4772 for additional information and/or support.
