Better Emerson College dining/food options for the well-being of students

This petition had 536 supporters

The Sodexo Food Services used here at Emerson aren’t entirely as healthy as they seem to be, nor are they appetizing enough. The food has been reported to leave students feeling nauseous after eating it, and many with dietary restrictions have said they often struggle finding meals each day (i.e. Celiac/gluten-free, Kosher, Vegan options). Much of the food offered isn’t exactly a healthy option for students; instead, they often have frozen food versus fresh food, and the fresh options don’t exactly feel fresh. While Sodexo does have diverse presentations and options, the options themselves have negative nutritional values for the most part and not a great deal of flavor. First and second year Emerson students are forced to have some dining plan, and must be reliant on the food if they live on campus - even though many do not want to be. Diet is proven to be an incredibly important part of a person’s well being, and as college students in a new environment and studying for our education, our health and well being is perhaps the most crucial thing at school, which, by relation, therefore makes our diet/meal plan at Emerson a key aspect to our well being as students. When the food options available aren’t nearly satisfying, and often make students feel unwell, our own well being suffers.
