At SAGE, we take food allergies seriously. Our varied and diverse menus allow all guests to dine safely while enjoying great-tasting foods. SAGE's food service directors and staff are trained on allergen avoidance and minimizing the risk of cross-contamination. Our registered dietitians prepare detailed education materials to help students and parents make informed and safe menu selections. We welcome students to read product labels so they can better manage their allergy, both at school and beyond.
At SAGE, we are committed to food allergy education and partnering with students, parents and schools to create safe environments where all kids can enjoy safe and healthful meals.
