The largest U.S.-based foodservice provider received the American Heart Association’s Award of Meritorious Achievement, which was presented at the association’s National Volunteer Awards on June 22.
AHA said Aramark earned this distinction for its dedication to bettering the nutrition and lifestyle habits of consumers, communities, and its employees through the provider's Healthy for Life initiative.
Since 2015, Aramark and the American Heart Association have worked together on the Healthy for Life initiative. The program includes community level nutrition education, menu innovation, consumer engagement and employee health and wellness education.
“The American Heart Association is deeply committed to developing innovative solutions with industry leaders, like Aramark, to help all Americans live healthier lives. As part of this visionary collaboration, we have developed new ways to improve the nation’s health and will continue to do so in the years ahead,” said AHA chief executive Nancy Brown.
