For Your Health
Being well and eating well means becoming aware of choices and making the right decisions to achieve a better today and a better tomorrow. Your Sodexo dining team is committed to offering you a wide range of options for a healthy dining experience. From recipes that include the most nutritious mix of ingredients to offering educational resources for positive lifestyle habits, healthy options are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.
Another important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients - many of which are grown by local or regional farmers. Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items.
For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have informational resources and customized menus to address your needs. These menus meet the strictest compliance standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation.
Sodexo's nutrition icons make it easy to identify healthy choices
Look for these nutrition icons on the foods being served on your campus to help you meet your dietary needs or desires. If you need assistance finding the right types of foods for you, please reach out to your on-campus Sodexo manager or chef. If you have additional dietary questions, please contact us so we can help! Sodexo has registered dieticians ready to answer your questions and help you make healthy choices.

Mindful by Sodexo
Mindful by Sodexo is a new program we are bringing to The Commons on the Green this fall.

Mindful is when those small steps of making recurring healthy choices become second nature. All Sodexo Mindful receipes will be designated by the Mindful green apple logo on our menus in the Commons on the Green. Additionally, Mindful choices will available through myfitnesspal, as well.
