We aim to create a dining environment that is supportive, comforting, and provides delicious food that nourishes the mind, body, and soul.

At Washington University, our goal as a part of the dining services team is to provide students with balanced meals that are ethnically diverse, readily accessible, full of variety, considerate of food allergens, intolerances, and sensitivities, and meets individual and group nutrition needs and preferences.

As dietitians, we offer students guidance, practical tools, and realistic recommendations that support a peaceful relationship with food and respect for their body. While nutrition and food selection is a main focus of dietary health and wellness, thoughts and beliefs about food and body image are equally powerful when it comes to student health.

Our dietitians work within a whole-body approach to strike a balance between nourishing & pleasurable foods, stress management, sleep hygiene, and joyful movement.

We want WashU to feel like home for our students. Our goal is to encourage students to eat the foods they love while allowing their bodies and minds to thrive here as students at Washington University and beyond.
