All Foods Fit: How Food Brings Us Together

Nutrition, All Foods Fit

SAGE’s All Foods Fit philosophy means there are no “good” or “bad” foods. We eat many different foods for many different reasons because food supports us in a variety of ways, such as providing nutritional balance, allowing the opportunity to explore other flavors and cultures, and giving us the chance to create long-lasting memories and enjoy the dining experience.

Let’s learn how food brings us together.

Celebrations and gatherings naturally bring people together, and food is often at the center, fostering a sense of unity. In a society that often prioritizes productivity over moments of relaxation and connection, it can be uncommon to be fully present with one another. Sharing a meal or food-related experience with others offers many psychosocial benefits, as it creates community and unification. It enhances our ability to listen and improves social skills, like empathy and understanding. Catching up with friends or discussing our day with family can not only improve our mood but also encourage us to slow down and unwind.

Taking our time while eating also aids in the overall digestion and absorption of nutrients. Dining with others often leads to a wider variety of foods in our diets and higher intake of fruits of vegetables, both of which can improve our overall health and well-being.

At SAGE, we emphasize inclusive dining. We want our community members to feel a sense of belonging and togetherness — a feeling everyone deserves! To ensure all community members are included, we focus on variety to accommodate food allergies, unique eating preferences, and religious dietary practices. SAGE wants everyone to enjoy a safe, delicious meal together.

Food is most fun when we share it together! What foods do you enjoy eating when you’re with your friends?
