It’s time to eat!

SAGE looks forward to serving you this year with fresh, wholesome, from-scratch food using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Menus are tailor-made just for your community, and provide a range of items to please a variety of palates and meet a variety of dietary needs, including food allergies.

We roast our own deli meats. We use the freshest local produce available. We buy cage-free, Certified Humane eggs and antibiotic- and hormone-free milk. We only use trans-fat-free oils and MSG-free seasonings. When you eat our food, you're tasting real ingredients. Not artificial flavors or preservatives.

Keeping Students Safe

Our online allergen filter and comprehensive ingredient list allow you to plan ahead every day. You can click on an allergen to filter our interactive menus to help you plan your child’s lunch. Click here to learn more about allergies and SAGE’s commitment to safety. You’re also welcome to schedule a time to visit our kitchen and ask about inventory and preparation methods. Our Team Members participate in daily training to learn best practices to keep the kitchen and Dining Hall safe.
Nutritional Guidance

We help students make informed decisions about healthy eating by teaching them to build their plates using the SAGE Spotlight Program®, a color-coded system based on foods’ nutritional value. Each menu item is marked with a green, yellow, or red dot. Eat a variety of green-dot foods every day, balance the plate with yellow-dot foods most days, and eat red-dot foods in moderation.

Educational Seasonings

Once a month, the SAGE team transforms your dining hall into an interactive dining experience. We use creative displays, informational guides, and tasting stations to bring each new topic to life. Guests have the chance to see, touch, taste, and learn about exciting new types of food.

Educational Seasonings introduce students to foods that might be unfamiliar to them. Past topics have included international and historical cuisine, unusual or uncommon foods, etiquette and manners, seasonal produce, methods of preparation and preservation, and much more.
