Sodexo has grown from the single largest private employer of Registered Dietitians in the United States to the largest in the world! There are almost 5,000 dietitians employed by Sodexo worldwide, with 2,700 here in the U.S. It’s projected that the demand for RDs will outpace growth by more than 20 percent by the year 2020. The opportunities for clinical dietitians and technicians are endless.
With a Sodexo Dietitian career, you’ll be making valuable contributions to the lives of patients, residents, interns, K-12 children, college students, communities, clients, and client employees.
Some of the environments our dietitians work in include:
One of the best ways to facilitate a patient’s treatment and increase patient satisfaction is through proper nutrition. As a leader in food service and nutrition, we ensure that meals are tasty, nutritious and prepared in accordance with each patient’s medical requirements.
“During National Nutrition Month, the dietitians at Flushing Hospital Medical Center promote “Registered Dietitian Approved” meals in the cafeteria, which is a huge hit. The RDs partner with the culinary staff to develop healthy, delicious meals and with the cafeteria staff to ensure correct portion sizes. The RDs even pitched in to serve meals, giving them the opportunity to talk to customers about healthy eating and to promote healthy food choices.”- Kelly McGuire Loud, RD, Flushing Hospital Medical Center
From preschool through higher education, we support students on their path to adulthood. To help them achieve their academic aspirations, Sodexo fosters a healthy lifestyle through nutrition services.
“The country’s 52 million students in the U.S. spend more time at school than any other place outside of their homes. It’s an enormous opportunity for Sodexo to support education partners in more than 500 school districts with nutrition, health and wellness learning opportunities, particularly for elementary students, in order to help shape healthy eating habits at an early age.” - Lorna C. Donatone, Region Chair for North America, CEO Schools
With increased life expectancy, the elderly population is growing. We oversee the well-being of seniors in specialized facilities, providing customized services and attentive care every day.
“The residents at the Bridgewater Retirement Community take part in menu planning with the on-site Sodexo Executive Chef, who encourages resident recommendations on favorite foods that they used to cook or eat. They just rolled out their fall menu, including Pumpkin and Corn Chowder, Balsamic Chicken with Apples and Feta, and Maple Glazed Carrots and Baked Butternut Squash.” - Laura Cason, RD, Bridgewater Retirement Community
