We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with SAGE Dining Services® as our food service provider beginning the fall of 2021!
SAGE, founded in 1990, is the leading food service provider for independent schools and private colleges throughout North America. SAGE focuses on safety, quality service, community, nutrition, education, sustainability, and delicious food made from scratch using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. An on-site Chef will get to know our school community and design a unique menu based on our preferences.
Your student will enjoy fresh-made menu items, including a nourishing main dish with a variety of starches and fresh vegetables; salad, deli, and soup options; creative, food truck-style fare; authentic Latin and Asian dishes; and expanded vegetarian options.
With one out of every 12 students SAGE serves managing a food allergy, SAGE takes great care to ensure that all Team Members are extensively trained in food allergy awareness, the menus provide enough variety to keep everyone happy, and community members are well informed through complete ingredient lists and serving line signs. SAGE’s comprehensive allergen filter, which you can access through the online menu and the free Touch of SAGE™ Mobile App, makes planning meals easy.
The transition will be made complete with a new marketplace theme, updated décor and innovative offerings.
In addition to new menus and a new look, the Tiberti Student Commons will only be accepting student ID’s as payment. In order to expedite the checkout process, we will no longer be accepting cash, credit or debit at any of the registers. This will allow our students to have more time to enjoy their lunch period with less time standing in line. Cards can be loaded on the website or through the PHIL station in the Commons. New students will receive their ID cards during orientation.
Finally, one of SAGE’s biggest strengths is concern for safety, which has become increasingly important in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re confident that their service protocols will allow our students to safely enjoy outstanding meals!
We are excited to share this news with you and will be sending more information in the coming weeks. We can’t wait for you to see our new dining services!
