Episcopal Collegiate School partners with SAGE Dining Services, Inc.® to provide real food: cooked from scratch, on-site, using locally-sourced ingredients. SAGE’s seasonal menus are custom designed for us, reflecting our students’ preferences as well as the fresh product available in the region. SAGE’s registered dietitians review and approve each menu to ensure it offers a wide variety of nutritious choices.
SAGE uses locally-sourced ingredients that are prepared fresh in our kitchen. There is no central commissary and few processed foods. Instead, SAGE hires talented chefs to produce meals the old fashioned way-- from scratch. Freshly made food tastes better, retains more nutrients, and is safer for the environment. All ingredients are free of transfats and MSG.
Here are some of the foods our students will enjoy each day:
- Freshly prepared soups and entrees, made from scratch;
- An extensive salad bar featuring a wide variety of fresh vegetables and toppings, as well as an array of dressings made from scratch;
- House-roasted and hand-sliced deli meats, as well as a variety of locally-baked breads;
- At least two fresh vegetables, as well as fresh cut fruit;
- A variety of beverages, including hormone-free/antibiotic-free milk, freshly-made spa water (flavored with freshly cut fruits and vegetables), lemonade and juices.
