We are proud to announce that Sodexo has teamed up with The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), a non-profit created in conjunction with – but independent from — the Let’s Move! initiative to combat childhood obesity.

Over time we have learned that we can’t solve the obesity challenge by working with children alone.  The role models in children’s lives have an incredibly important impact on their behavior.  The changes we will make as a result of our commitments to PHA will address how we serve children and their role models on campus, in the workplace, at hospitals, in schools and at our cultural destinations.  These new health and wellness commitments  are extensive and demonstrate how we are further expanding on our recognized expertise in health and wellness to improve quality of life for our children and their families.  We believe the strength of these actions will not only positively impact children and families in our communities, but also move the food service industry toward delivering more nutritious options everywhere in the U.S.

Our Commitments to the Partnership for a Healthier America:

1: Mindful Healthy Dining Program

To expand the reach and level of our Mindful Healthy Dining Program to promote healthy lifestyles for Americans in the workplace and on college campuses. This will allow these locations to achieve Sodexo’s gold standard for wellness throughout the dining environment.

2: Healthy Vending Program

To increase the healthy food options in Sodexo-operated vending machines. These vending machines will offer and highlight a new level of healthier choices.

3: Hospital Healthy Food Initiative

To implement PHA’s Hospital Healthy Food Initiative in Sodexo-operated accounts.

4: Smarter Lunchroom Program

We will create Smarter Lunchroom Programs in Sodexo-operated primary and secondary school accounts.

5: Free Breakfast Program

We will increase participation in free school breakfasts at Sodexo-operated primary and secondary school accounts.

6: Healthier Children’s Meals at Cultural Destinations

We will promote healthier children’s meals at Sodexo-operated cultural destinations such as our zoo, museum and aquarium accounts.

We are excited to be the first company to make these PHA commitments across such a broad range of venues. What are some of your health and wellness commitments?
