GAITHERSBURG, MD, March 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sodexo, a food service and facilities management company committed to providing quality of life, announced a first-of-its-kind partnership today with HelloFresh, the world’s leading meal kit company, to offer delivery of HelloFresh and EveryPlate meal kits to students at more than 300 U.S. colleges and universities.

Using Sodexo’s BiteU app, students can pre-select, order and schedule meal kits for delivery. Whether students are vegetarian, on a low-calorie diet, or looking for something quick and easy, HelloFresh gives them the flexibility to select meals from an extensive rotating weekly menu. EveryPlate offers an ever-changing menu of simplistic, delicious, and affordable chef-curated recipes with vegetarian and gourmet options. Meal kits arrive with fresh, pre-measured ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and all the necessary tools to get dinner together in 30 minutes or less. Students have the option to cancel, change, or skip orders at any time.

“Our campus dining program is focused on enabling choice and convenience,” said Kevin Rettle, vice president, global offer development and digital innovation, Sodexo Universities and Schools. “Our partnership with HelloFresh allows us to expand our resident dining experience and provide an affordable, family meal-style option for students and customers.”

“We are excited to partner with Sodexo to bring both our HelloFresh and EveryPlate brand meal kits to college campuses across the country,” said Andreas Sossong, vice president, strategic projects at HelloFresh US. “Busy students should have a convenient, affordable way to enjoy delicious, homecooked meals with high quality ingredients. We look forward to introducing this unique cooking experience to students at additional campuses throughout the year.”

Sodexo’s on-campus food and retail outlets are powered by its BiteU app. Created internally by Sodexo’s technology and university teams, the BiteU app connects back-end card systems to make meal plans and payment options seamless and creates a safe, cashless environment across campuses. Since launching, BiteU has been deployed at 40 percent of Sodexo-serviced sites. It will achieve 80 percent deployment by August 2021.
