By protecting and improving our environment, the communities where we do business and the students we serve, Sodexo makes every day a better day and every tomorrow a better tomorrow.

Sustainability Initiatives

Your Sodexo Campus Dining Team is dedicated to sustainability.  We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at Jackson State University. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Jackson State University.

Waste Reduction Efforts

Trayless Dining

We are a trayless campus. Customers without trays typically waste less food and beverages. It is also a healthier approach to eating, as we all know that at times our eyes are bigger than our stomach. Trayless dining also reduces the amount of water and detergents needed to wash trays - and saves energy too!

Xprss Nap Dispensers

Xprss Nap Dispensers save energy and waste.  The napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and the dispenser will encourage customers to take (and waste) fewer napkins. Energy is saved because less power is used to recycle paper products than to create them from virgin material.  

Reusable Dishware

We offer china dishes in our dining locations.  This reduces waste associated with using disposable containers.  Dining in?  Be sure to use china.  We also use china at our catered functions on site.

Local / Seasonal / Responsible Sourcing

Local Dairy

All of our fluid milk is purchased from local dairies that do not use rBST.
