WEB NUTRITION. Campus Dish includes info on menus and healthy lifestyle tips.
A ramark has unveiled CampusDish, a web portal-that offers college and university customers access to nutrition and dining information through the internet, along with walk-up nutrition kiosks and podcasting. The product features downloadable audio and video podcasts about dining menus, nutrition information, special events, promotions and healthy eating options.
In addition, the web portal allows students to view meal plans, order catering and gift baskets and apply for jobs. Dynamically linked to the CampusDish web portal are walk-up nutritional kiosks inside dining halls that provide nutritional information for any day, location, day-part and menu on the campus.
The kiosks can also feature information on healthy lifestyles, promotions or special events. The CampusDish web portal is already operational at more than 140 Aramark-managed colleges and universities throughout North America, the company says. It expects to offer the program at all campuses it serves within the next year.
In addition, more than 60 CampusDish podcasts are now offered at several universities, including East Carolina University, Furman University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia. More than 80 nutrition kiosks are expected to debut on various campuses this fall.
