Over the past two months I have completed both my food service management and leadership concentration at Nintendo of America outside of Seattle, WA. This experience has been very enriching and allowed for a great deal of professional growth. Apart from learning the food service management side of Nintendo’s Café Mario, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with different departments within Nintendo including their Wellness Committee, Fitness Center and Green Team. A major focus of my leadership concentration has been upholding Sodexo’s Better Tomorrow Commitments by promoting Healthy and Sustainable Food & Environments. To continue advancing this commitment, I proposed a reusable mug initiative, which was met with enthusiasm. A reusable mug campaign is currently under development, which will supply each Nintendo employee with a reusable mug at no cost. The reusable mug initiative will encourage employees to help reduce waste, potentially saving both Sodexo and Nintendo thousands of dollars. Employees will also be encouraged to stay hydrated, as the campaign will highlight how versatile the reusable mugs can be, including to help increase water consumption. The leadership rotation has allowed me to combine my interests in nutrition and sustainability and learn more about how to develop and present project proposals at the corporate level- all transferable and invaluable skills!
