CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Chartwells Higher Education, a recognized leader in contract food service management, and The Jed Foundation (JED), a leading nonprofit that protects emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation's teens and young adults, today announced "Thought-Ful," a nationwide event designed to encourage and celebrate the power of joy through self-care, mindfulness, spreading positivity, and togetherness. Thought-Ful is a signature event of Chartwells' award-winning Joy-Ful campaign taking place on April 11, 2024.

Thought-Ful will be simultaneously celebrated across Chartwells campuses nationwide, featuring special menus, self-care activities, and other opportunities to promote togetherness. Campuses will showcase a "Good For You, Good For The Planet" menu with meal concepts designed to lower carbon impacts and provide functional benefits for students. Students will also have the chance to participate in ten unique Thought-Ful experiences to promote self-care and mindfulness, with themes that promote movement, trying something new, and being present in the moment.

"Self-care is top-of-mind for today's college students, and we wanted to create an event that promotes well-being while also spreading joy and positivity to others on campus," said Eva Wojtalewski, CEO at Chartwells Higher Education. "We're hopeful that the variety of wellness themes help students bring Thought-Ful to life on campus in their own unique ways, and we're excited to see how campus communities come together through this event."

During Thought-Ful, students have the chance to participate in activities that revolve around doing good, enjoying the moment, connecting with friends, trying new things, and encouraging wellness and joy. Activities vary from campus to campus and can include giveaways of kindness, therapy dogs, social mixers, classes for new hobbies, and more.

Thought-Ful also places a special emphasis on nourishing the body and mind, as well as the planet, during Earth Month. In addition to the "Good For You, Good For The Planet" menu, Chartwells' dining halls nationwide have climate-friendly menu labels that indicate meals with lower carbon impacts through its partnership with HowGood.

Thought-Ful is another example of how Chartwells is bringing students across the nation together in memorable ways through the Joy-Ful campaign. For more information on Chartwells and Thought-Ful, please visit /.
