Food is the fuel your body needs to function. Chances are you're pretty careful about what you put into your car's gas tank. Shouldn't you care at least as much about what you eat? Today there's a wider variety of foods to choose from than ever before. Making smart choices is a critical part of any total health plan. When you combine a well-balanced diet with moderate exercise, it can help you feel better and keep off unwanted pounds, while avoiding the revolving door of dieting.
Gardner-Webb Dining believes that good nutrition is essential to good health. To help assist you in furnishing your body with the essentials for a healthy diet, we have several tools to offer.

XOXO to Sodexo – For Taking a Stand for Millions of Hens
Today, with Sodexo, we are announcing that the giant food service company has committed, over the next five years, to switch all 20 million pounds of its liquid eggs to cage-free. The company manages dining operations at thousands of colleges, universities, hospitals, and corporate dining centers across the country. Due to its enormous size, this will remove 750,000 hens from battery cages per year and put them into cage-free settings. This announcement comes after prior announcements from the company to switch to cage-free for its 39 million shell eggs – which provides a better living for an additional 150,000 birds.
