Simple Servings

What is "Simple Servings?"

Simple Servings is Sodexo's solution to proactively address most of the ingredients that account for 90% of all food-allergy reactions: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. The 8th FDA specified allergen, fin fish, is included in the offer. Simple Servings also recognizes the current skyrocketing demand for gluten-free foods, which certain students may require out of medical necessity (celiac disease) or simply by choice. Simple Servings also appeals to students who prefer plain and simple foods and those with other health-related dietary concerns, such as Type I diabetes. With Simple Servings, students can comply with food allergy or other dietary concerns without feeling singled out. They won't have to go off campus for their meals or miss out on dining with their friends while waiting for the chef to specially prepared their meals. All foods offered at the Simple Serving station are naturally free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts and gluten. Straightforward preparation techniques assure transparency of ingredients, and help student prepare to be responsible for their own shopping and cooking in future. The lunch and dinner menu change daily and include varied protein options: fish, beef, pork, chicken and turkey. All side dishes are vegan, containing no milk, eggs, or meat products.

Mindful by Sodexo

What is "Mindful?"

Most people want it but many struggle with making it a natural part of each day. Mindful by Sodexo strives to change that. Our approach is to make it an easy choice for you to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. In our cafes, we will now offer Mindful foods that balance nutrition with enticing flavors to create an indulgent way to enjoy health. Our hope is that making Mindful choices becomes second nature for you not only in the workplace but also at home with your family!
