Sodexo supports student engagement and improves the Quality of Life for the entire Schools community. By focusing on Quality of Life services, we reinforce the overall experience of a student’s educational journey. – Steve Dunmore, President Sodexo Education – Schools

Dear Students and Parents,

Sodexo supports student engagement and improves the Quality of Life for the entire Schools community. As part of our commitment to enhancing Quality of Life for the clients, students and communities we serve, we invite you to view the newly redesigned content on Lift-Off!’s Playground. Lift-Off!’s Playground provides easy to navigate online content for students and families around nutrition, fitness and overall healthy living. 

Look on the site for the Monthly Fresh Pick. The Sodexo Fresh Pick program is designed to further the nutrition education of students, parents and educators by focusing on the many positive benefits of eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Each month features an instructional recipe video starring Sodexo Ambassador and Student Chef, Chef Remmi, using the Fresh Pick nutritional item of the month. 

While you are visiting with Lift-Off!, don’t forget to check out our series of healthy cooking videos with Sodexo National Director of Wellness, Roxanne Moore, RDN. Throughout the videos, students talk about why each recipe is healthy. Many of the recipes were adapted from the Share Our Strength Cooking Matters program, the Gluten Intolerance Group or Sodexo and are designed to be kid-friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please email us anytime with questions, comments or suggestions about how we can improve your students’ experience.
