besides, besides that


Is it a correct usage to say, "Besides that, they don't provide meals."


Do we really need to put 'that' after 'besides'?

Adding that is unnecessary but not incorrect; using the one-word sentence adverb Besides is less wordy but otherwise they mean the same: as well/furthermore.
