BeWell Wellness Program
A’viands is excited to announce the implementation a new wellness program in each of the dining hall called BeWell. BeWell was created to make it easier for you to choose healthful dining options. Each BeWell menu option will be identified by a blueberry icon. The symbolization of this icon is derived from the blueberry being a small, yet powerful fruit, making it the perfect symbol for healthy eating. The blueberry icon represents our company’s commitment to being small enough to care and big enough to make a difference. The BeWell wellness approach encourages positive behavior change through our promotions, wellness education programs, and partnerships.
