When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.

Dining with Bon Appétit at Roger Williams University
Food is a vital part of college life. A meal with friends doesn’t just nourish the body, it builds lasting relationships and feeds the soul. At the same time, campus dining can also be a source of anxiety: Will there be options for me? What if I don’t have time to sit down? Will the food even be good?
At Bon Appétit our passion is creating community through food. We make more than 200 million meals each year at college campuses, workplaces and cultural institutions that are not only delicious, they also embody core values – about from-scratch cooking, wellness, dignity, and sustainability – that we take very seriously
