Kent State of Wellness Featured Meals
Kent State of Wellness 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 Dining Halls meet the Kent State of Wellness nutrition criteria. We also offer a Kent State of Wellness Featured Meal at every meal period at The Market, Prentice and Eastway Fresh Food Company. Those dishes will have a Kent State of Wellness sticker located on the nutrition card so they can be easily identified.
