Enabling people to prosper on a healthy planet

UNESCO reports that 91 percent of students “agree their place of study should actively incorporate and promote sustainable development.”

In response, colleges and universities are making major commitments to actively protect the environment through social responsibility, wellness, and sustainability initiatives.

Lifestyle-focused menus make it easy for students to eat right

Now more than ever, students are prioritizing personal wellbeing and the wellbeing of the planet. They demand their higher education institutions support these goals and expect complete transparency and authenticity around the origin of their foods, healthy options, and sustainability initiatives. To stay fueled, students want clean, nutritious, and wholesome ingredients, and local, responsibly sourced products.

Green Thread is our commitment to weave environmentally responsible practices into everything we do.

 In partnership with the American Heart Association, we have achieved a 20 percent reduction in calories, saturated fat and sodium, along with a 20 percent increase in fruits, vegetables and whole grains on our menus.

Environmental Stewardship

Environmental Stewardship

Developing customized solutions for each campus to reduce environmental impact.

As a food service partner, we touch millions of lives every day and have a responsibility to take sustainability very seriously in our daily operations and planning. We have the resources and expertise needed to create sustainable food service operations on campus and to meet the expectations of today’s students. We leverage our environmental sustainability platform, Green ThreadTM, to proactively take on environmental issues that resonate with your campus community.

For today’s students, sustainability, social responsibility, and transparency are not expectations, they are requirements. In fact, 83% of people consider sustainability when buying food. In response, we help you design sustainability initiatives based on your unique campus needs and goals. Together, we can prioritize your sustainability strategy and identify changes that can be made immediately as well as over time.

Along with your institution, we’ll address issues like responsible sourcing, waste minimization and management, green building operations, and eco-friendly transportation. And depending on your institution’s goals, we can align sustainability efforts with your community, such as local purchasing initiatives, creating green structures to operate buildings more efficiently, or building programs and platforms to educate and engage the campus community. We can help you form an environmental sustainability commitment for long-term impact.

Campus Community

Campus Community

We create memorable experiences that connect students to their campus.

Today’s students are entering college with a different mind-set: they expect to have noteworthy experiences that surprise and delight, are memorable, and which they can share on social media. More than ever, they are looking to stay current and connected, and are constantly sharing, collaborating and giving back. What’s more, they are looking to actively engage with their campus community. Our customized dining programs engage campus communities using a powerful combination of traditional communication tools as well as the latest technology. Students embrace our social media and customer feedback options, mobile and web ordering, health and wellness apps, digital menu boards with nutritional information, touchscreen kiosks, and cashless convenience stores and vending machines.

In addition to providing up-to-date menus and nutritional content, our CampusDish portals provide an interactive method for students to give feedback from their dining experience as well as a place for parents to keep up with what is being served for lunch. We also leverage social media to further engage and communicate with students using their favorite platforms. The end result is a culinary community on campus in which students are connected with the information and the services they need, right at their fingertips.
