Dining Services Nutrition and Wellness
Keeping your body and mind healthy starts with nutritious food choices. Our food is flavorful, nutritious and prepared from scratch using only the freshest and highest-quality ingredients. Raw and cooked vegetables (including organic when possible). At least five fruits daily. Beans, nuts and seeds. Whole grains. Real turkey dinners—not processed.
