A SAGE Table event consists of a shared meal and conversations between older and younger generations. The goal of the event is to create an age diverse event to alleviate loneliness and isolation in LGBT elders and provide opportunities for social connection.

Shared meals may consist of breakfast, lunch or dinner and may be in the form of a potluck or meeting at a restaurant.
