Optimized Food Service Eligibility

This module integrates with our Student Information System, Q, and greatly streamlines the logistics of determining food service eligibility.

With free and reduced meal application management, community surveys, and direct certification, Q Food Service is one module that can handle all of your district’s cafeteria operations.

Efficient Point of Sale Transactions

Through Q Food Service’s point of sale (POS), districts have all the necessary tools to manage their real-time cafeteria operations. Our solution supports multiple, high-speed POS registers including touch screens, USB, and Bluetooth scanners and scales.

Q Food Service POS also hides eligibility status to ensure confidentiality, and it works with Q Student Health to alert staff of food allergies.

“Q Food Service allows us to tap into students who are already enrolled in the SIS since it’s integrated with Q. Other point of sale programs would require a regular extract of students and their information to keep the database current. This helps streamline operations and saves our districts valuable time.”
