There are many kosher items to be found in any dining hall around campus. With the exception of Café Nana, the Hartley Kosher Deli, the John Jay Kosher Station, and Hewitt's Kosher Dining Kitchen, these items are not under any supervision and are therefore subject to change. While I do keep in touch with our campus's dining services to see if they have made any changes, it doesn't hurt to ask, "where do you get your bagels from?" every now and then. If the answer is different than what is suggested below, from a kashrut perspective it is advisable to find out more information before you eat. If you do notice any changed please let me know ASAP. If you are interested in having more packaged kosher items at a specific location, please let me know by e-mail at which items and which location. I will gladly forward your request to dining services
