Our Response to COVID-19
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, SAGE has been planning and adapting our food preparation, service, and menus to keep community members and our Team Members safe. More than 30 locations remain open, and we’re safely serving community members who remain on campus.
A lot is happening behind the scenes to ensure we’re prepared for reopenings at the rest of the schools and colleges we serve, including training, recruiting, recipe and menu development, and coordination with suppliers. Our senior executives meet three times a week to discuss and develop new plans based on our current operating experience and the latest government-issued COVID-19 information and guidance.
We’ve developed recommendations for safely reopening kitchens and dining halls — SAGE’s Approach to Reopening Dining Halls, which includes alternative service methods, safety and cleaning protocols, and other recommendations that would minimize contact with other community members and the food.
We believe that meals at school will be more important than ever after months of self-isolation. We’re dedicated to making mealtime safe and enjoyable for all students, faculty, and guests. Every campus is different, and every reopening will be unique.
Safety and quality service remain our priorities as we navigate what may be the new normal for dining service, and we continue to support our clients, community members, and Team Members every way we can.
