Eat Well Berkeley Mission
The mission of the Eat Well Berkeley program is to identify and promote healthier food options throughout the UC Berkeley campus and campus community to support the of UC Berkeley students, staff, faculty and visitors. Be Well at Work -- Wellness Program strives to ensure access to healthy food and beverage choices on and around campus through the Eat Well Berkeley program. We have developed nutrition guidelines for catering, meetings and events, vending, and restaurants to ensure healthy choices are available in food venues on campus. The guidelines are designed in support of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The Eat Well Berkeley Catering Program strives to increase access to healthier food and beverage choices provided at meetings, events and other functions on campus, as outlined in the UC Berkeley Healthy Meeting & Event Guide.

The Healthy Meetings and Events webpage represents a step toward that commitment by ensuring faculty, staff and students have access to healthy food and beverage choices at all campus-supported events serving refreshments.

The University is committed to improving access to healthier food choices. In partnership with ASUC, RSSP, Canteen Vending, and Be Well at Work -- Wellness Program, we are pleased to make it easier to choose a healthier snack when visiting campus vending -- 50% of the snack products offered in campus machines comply with Canteen's Choice Plus nutrition standards. Look for the Choice Plus Spiral Identifier (or sticker) identifying the healthier snack choices.
Remember, that a healthy diet is rich in whole, fresh foods and limited in processed snack foods.
