A note to SAGE from a Shorecrest parent:
"Thanks so much for the detailed information. Your website is great! My girls are really enjoying being able to make their own lunch & snack choices & I really appreciate not having to pack a full lunchbox every day!"

“Touch of SAGE” Mobile App

Download the Touch of SAGE app to easily view menus and allergens. Parents/guardians can set up the app for every child they have at a SAGE school, and students, faculty and staff can also access it. The app interfaces with each venue’s menus and ingredient lists, and provides a comprehensive allergen filter. Students can favorite items that they enjoy, see school-specific events, and give feedback on items that goes directly to their SAGE Chef. The free app is available on Android and iOS systems for any device. 

“Touch of SAGE makes planning meals easy, and provides a vehicle for parents to have a dialogue with their children about what they should select to eat, especially if they have a food allergy.” says Paco Rodriguez, President and Co-Founder of SAGE. 

The app can be found in Self Service on all Shorecrest-issued MS student and faculty/staff iPad devices.
