Nutrition Resources from Dining Services at Wilkes University for When You Want to Know What's Good for You!
Being well and eating well is a process of becoming aware of choices and making the right decisions to achieve a balanced life. We are 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 offerings are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.
For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have a full roster of informational resources and customized menus to address your needs. These menus meet the strictest compliance standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation.
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.
Each month Sodexo Campus Services features a new range of topics which are available on site.
