Foodservice leader Sodexo is rolling out an integrated middle school dining experience. Its new foodiE Café is designed to enhance the lunch period and “exceed the expectations of middle school students, administrators and parents,” Sodexo said.
FoodiE Café is further described as “comprising trending flavor profiles, convenient meals, sustainable alternatives and healthy options – served fast.”
“From its flavor, to its format, to its function, middle schoolers understand food more now than ever before,” explained Sodexo schools chief Stephen Dunmore. “FoodiE Café helps middle schoolers explore global flavors, understand local products, and enjoy all of their favorites while embracing health and wellness.”
To successfully redesign the middle school dining experience, Sodexo’s foodiE Café was built on three pillars: enjoyment, engagement and exploration.
Using integrated technology – including pre-ordering via the SoHappy app, social media integration, and trending online resources students expect at their fingertips – school lunch with friends becomes more fun and engaging.
FoodiE Café cultivates engagement and enthusiasm with age-appropriate integrated curriculum and forges vital connections with families and school communities.
