ONE-OF-A-KIND DINING EXPERIENCES
At SAGE, we don’t just make food. We create exceptional dining experiences.
When you step into a SAGE dining hall, you’re immediately surrounded by an abundance of freshly prepared, mouthwatering foods and welcoming, attentive service.
Our Chefs use local and campus-grown ingredients to create delicious meals on-site every day. We partner with local vendors to bring you fresh, seasonal food and produce. We create menus for each community, offering a variety of nutritious menu choices, more whole foods, fewer additives and preservatives, and increased awareness of what goes into each meal.
Scratch and Batch CookingWe believe in serving real food
Real food is cooked from scratch. Real food is made from fresh, raw ingredients.
Real food is cooked by passionate, trained Chefs who care about the environment.
We roast our own deli meats in-house. We use the freshest local produce available. We buy cage-free, Certified Humane® eggs and hormone-free milk. When you eat our food, you're tasting real ingredients, not artificial flavors or preservatives.
With SAGE, you'll always know what's in your food.
Each SAGE Chef prepares food in small batches, so that the last person served
experiences the same level of quality as the first. We cook only as much as
needed, reducing food waste and minimizing leftovers.
Local SourcingWe support your local economy
Local food is fresher, tastes better, and has a lower environmental impact. SAGE has partnered with more than 800 local and regional distributors to supply the communities we serve with fresh, seasonal food and produce.
SUSTAINABILITYWe are stewards of the Earth’s resources; every facet of our operations reflects our commitment to our planet and the local community.
SAGE GARDENSNearly 70% of SAGE venues have some form of garden, ranging from simple herb boxes to fully functioning farms.
MEET THE FARMEREvery ingredient tells a story. It starts on a farm or in a garden, and ends on your plate. SAGE shares these stories through our Meet the Farmer program. We profile the family-operated area vendors who supply food for our kitchens.
