Welcome to SAGEWe deliver exceptional dining experiences
You'll know the moment you step into a SAGE dining hall.
It's the tantalizing aroma of freshly cooked food. It's the colorful displays of fruits and vegetables laid out before you. It's the welcoming smiles on the faces of the Team Members. It's the comprehensive sustainability initiative that safeguards the environment without losing quality. It's delicious meals and bespoke menus and everything in between – all the hallmarks of the SAGE program that set us apart.
No one else does it like SAGE.
We exceed expectations
SAGE has focused on serving independent schools for over 30 years.
That gives us an advantage – we know what you want, and we're on the same page.
We care about the partnerships we've formed with schools, and our managers give those relationships the highest priority. We're passionate about great food, nutrition, and sustainability. Our educational materials and posters are personalized for your community. We are committed to financial transparency and integrity.
Your dining program is uniqueWe Value Your Diversity
No two schools are identical. No two communities share the same tastes and preferences.
Your school is special – so why should your dining service be any different?
Your SAGE Team is part of your community. They're with you every step of the way – sharing every success, joining in every celebration. They'll tailor each menu just for you – using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, so you know you're getting the best of your region.
Watch your dining hall come aliveWhen SAGE joins your community, every meal becomes a reason to come together. Your dining hall is the heart of campus – the place where everyone gathers to share food and time. You'll always look forward to lunch when we're in the kitchen.
No one is left out – we deliver safe, healthy options for every member of your community regardless of allergies or dietary restrictions.
We foster communityOur role in the community transcends the dining hall.
A strong dining program strengthens students' ties to the school and one another. By doing what we do best, we can enhance the school's mission and create a strong feeling of fellowship in the community.
Inspiring MindsLet us show you what our food is all about
With SAGE, every meal is a new opportunity to learn. We believe that education
continues even after you've left the classroom. We provide each venue with a variety
of resources, from posters to table tents, so you have our knowledge at your fingertips.
Access our online menus to see what's for lunch every day. Our custom technology makes it easy for you to see the ingredients in every dish. You can also filter for common allergens like wheat and dairy.
Reduce, Reuse, RecycleWe encourage trayless dining, compost organic waste into gardening materials, and contract with vendors to convert used cooking oil into bio-diesel.
Allergy SupportYou can enjoy a safe, delicious meal in any SAGE dining hall even if you have a food allergy or a restrictive diet. Our registered dietitians are always available to help!
Farm To TableWe support family-operated local and regional farms and vendors. Our Meet the Farmer program highlights each individual's contribution to your dining hall.

My kids eat a balanced hot lunch every day, which is particularly important on a crazy day with lots of after-school activities.
Parent / Guardian
The food is delicious! I'm so lucky to have SAGE prepare my lunch every day.
It's food that we actually want to eat as teenagers. There are chicken and fries but still healthy options and sides, so it doesn't feel like all unhealthy food.
The availability of fresh produce is amazing! I also appreciate the variety of soups.
We used to have "good days" and "bad days" with the old service and were sad to be sick and miss a good day since they were recognizable. Every day has something good now.
Chef and staff are AWESOME! They live up to and promote the ideals of healthy living!
I like that you serve real meals instead of standard cafeteria food. It's nice to have home-cooked meals for lunch.
My son says the food is great, and we've always been impressed on our visits.
Parent / Guardian
It is fresh, homemade cooking! I love that we local source and that we let the community know where we are getting our local products from.
My daughter LOVES the lunches. Thank you! Wonderful variety!
Parent / Guardian
Whenever I pack my lunch, I always regret it because I see how good the food looks that day.
They serve vegetarian options, as well as fresh, organic food. I also love the fact that they recycle and compost the materials (food and paper).
In our Food Service Director, Benedictine is fortunate to have a first-rate chef and a team player. We are grateful for his presence among us.
My second grader eats more vegetable at school than she does at home—and that's a lot! Thank you, Chef, for the delicious and well-balanced meals you make for our kids. Keep up the good work!
Our Chef and SAGE Dining Services ® provide our children with healthy options cooked so deliciously and presented so beautifully, that even parents stay for lunch!
If I were stranded on a desert island with only three things, I'd want to have my friends, my laptop, and the SAGE Dining Team.
