Kent State of Well-being Featured Meals

Kent State of Wellness

Kent State of Well-being is the university-wide effort to promote wellness. We strive to create a healthy environment and to prioritize the health and wellness of our community inside all of our Dining Locations. 50% of the meals we offer in our All-You-Care-To-Eat Dining locations meet the Kent State of Well-being nutrition criteria. We also offer a Kent State of Well-being Featured Meal at every meal period at our All-You-Care-To-Eat Dining locations. Those dishes will have a Kent State of Well-being sticker located on the nutrition card so they can be easily identified.
