Dining Services and Opportunities

Estes Dining Hall

Fork Union Military Academy partners with SAGE Dining Services® to offer our cadets and staff outstanding dining services.

SAGE, founded in 1990, is the leading food service provider for independent schools and private colleges throughout the nation. 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.

Fork Union receives fresh-made menu items, including a nourishing main dish with a variety of starches and fresh vegetables as sides; salad, deli, and soup options; creative, food truck-style fare; authentic Latin and Asian dishes; and expanded vegetarian options.

SAGE provides expertise in allergy accommodations and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance. 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.

SAGE also extends education into the dining hall by guiding community members to build a balanced plate. The SAGE Spotlight Program® provides nutritional guidance with a color-coded system that will help us find a variety of nourishing, tasty, and enjoyable foods. Performance Spotlight® will help our athletes get the fuel they need for training and game days, drawing upon guidelines from the U.S. Olympic Committee, the NCAA, and other sports associations.

Sabre Shop 

(The Sabre Shop is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.)

The Sabre Shop provides cadets with an on-campus dining alternative. Open select times during the day, and during various athletic events, the Sabre Shop gives cadets another place to eat and socialize. The dining facilities are well-maintained, and meet all state and local health standards.

Vaughan Hall Social Center

The Vaughan Hall Social Center, which is located across from Jacobson Hall, our student barracks, is open throughout the weekends and during breaks in the daily class schedule.  Normally, just a place for students to relax and enjoy themselves with a game of chess, ping pong, pool, or a video game or two with friends, Vaughan Hall can also be the home to social events that include dances, cookouts, snacks and drinks.
