Sodexo’s Meatless Monday

The world’s premier food services provider announces Meatless Monday across the US.

Sodexo, a premier food services provider that serves 10 million customers daily, is rolling out a new Meatless Monday campaign to hospital, education, government, and corporate clients around the country. Nitu Gupta, vice president of brand management for Sodexo health care, says, “Meatless Monday is a simple thing we can do in the face of multiple challenges. Little changes in our behavior can have a profound effect.” Sodexo is also the manager and operator of Northwestern University’s dining services, which won PETA2’s “Most Vegan-Friendly College in America” award in 2010 for serving such vegan options as seitan tacos, pumpkin chowder, and Thai green curry with tofu.
