For Your Health
Providing you with healthy options is something your Sodexo team proudly does every day. Sodexo helps guests on our campuses select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help guests make choices that fit their needs.
An 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. Enjoy healthy choices on your campus throughout the year.

Sodexo’s nutrition icons make it easy to identify healthy choices
Look for the following nutrition icons on the foods being served on your campus to help you meet your dietary needs or desires.
|Vegan offerings contain no meat, fish, eggs, milk or other animal-derived products such as honey. Look for the menu icon to find vegan items daily.|
|Menu items with the vegetarian icon do not contain meat, fish or poultry, or meat products (i.e. soup bases). Our vegetarian offerings meet the needs of lacto-ovo vegetarians, and may include eggs and/or dairy products. Vegan items are also offered for those vegetarians who avoid all animal products.|
|We work closely with local produce distributors to maximize the fruits and vegetables purchased from local farms. We also purchase from local dairies, and participate in farm to school initiatives. Tracking local purchases helps us to meet our Better Tomorrow Plan commitment of 20% local purchase by 2020.|
|Organic food is produced by farmers, who focus on using renewable resources and conserving soil and water to preserve the environment for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from antibiotic-free and hormone-free animals.
Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Look for the menu icon identifying organic foods.
