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.

Sustainability Initiatives

We are dedicated to continually improving our sustainability efforts. Here are a few things we are already doing to be more sustainable: 

Local Purchasing

We are proud to support our community! Check out a map of local farms and businesses supported by Sodexo at Kentucky Wesleyan College. 

Fair Trade

We support a Better Tomorrow by serving Fair Trade coffees everyday at both Subconnection/Simply to Go locations, Hocker Family Dining Hall, Jazzman's Cafe in the Winchester Center, and any where you want to be through Flavours Catering. 

Trayless Dining

We offer trayless dining in the Hocker Family Dining Hall, our all-you-care-to-eat resident dining hall. This helps to reduce the food waste on our campus, as well as the amount of water that would be used to wash the trays. 

Vegan and Vegetarian Dining

Going meat-free, even for only a few meals a week, can have a big impact toward reducing your carbon footprint. 

Food Donations

When available, we donate left-over food to the local Daniel Pitinio Shelter. Each semester, Sodexo sponsors a Helping Hands campaign that raises awareness about hunger and accepts student donations for our local food bank, Stop Hunger Backpack Program which helps Summer meal programs for children, Midnight Breakfast during Finals Week, and our Board of Directors for yearly Food Committee have a lunch meal each month to meet and discuss dining needs. 

Recycled Napkins

We use recycled content napkins at all of our dining locations on campus. 

Reusable Mug Program

We sell reusable bottles and mugs at many of our dining locations and offer significant discounts when customers use these, or their own, reusable mugs. 

Other Ways You Can Help

  • Take only the number of napkins you need per meal. 
  • Take only one cup for each beverage purchase. 
  • Purchase re-usable insulated mug from Jazzmans - discount! 
  • Recycle paper, plastic and aluminum throughout campus at the designated in the Administration Building recycling stations. 
  • Dine in rather than carrying out. 
  • Have a sustainable suggestion? 

Recycle Paper

All paper used within our Sodexo unit is recycled into 2 totes and called for NCIS to pick-up. 

Recycle Office Supplies

All ink cartridges, toners, etc. are brought to Office Depot.
