By protecting and improving our environment, the communities where we do business and the students we serve, Sodexo makes every day a better day and every tomorrow a better tomorrow.

Promoting Healthy Dining

Sodexo at UAH is very committed to serving our students that have a dietary request or need for vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free meals. As far as day to day options we have a wide variety of options for students with these preferences. We incorporate it in our entree line menu for every meal but also rotate items in on the pizza, deli, and exhibition stations. Our goal is to be able to provide a wide variety for the students.


We want to promote healthy dining at all our on-campus locations! So we are proud to bring you Mindful by Sodexo. Our approach is to make it an easy choice for you to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. We 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 on campus but also at home with your family. Be on the lookout for our Mindful Heroes at Charger Café and check out our Mindful website.


By connecting our nutrition database of thousands of chef developed, signature Sodexo recipes with the market leading free MyFitnessPal application, we make it easy for students to keep track of their personal nutrition objectives whether dining with Sodexo, at home, or their favorite restaurant. Starting this fall the daily nutrition signs will have a barcode that can be scanned and the nutrition information will automatically appear in the MyFitnessPal app.

Mindful Offering

Mindful offerings meet stringent nutritional criteria based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Each meal part is limited in calories, has fewer than 30% of calories as fat, fewer than 10 % of calories as saturated fat, and is restricted in sodium, and cholesterol. Chefs in our test kitchen develop recipes to meet these criteria in delicious fashion! Look for the Mindful icon to indulge in the healthy and delicious items offered at each meal.

Being well and eating well means becoming aware of choices and making the right decisions to achieve a better today and a better tomorrow. Your Sodexo dining team is 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 options are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.

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.

For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have informational resources and customized menus to address your needs. These menus meet the strictest compliance standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation.
