Kosher Co-op Kitchen

The kosher community kitchen (warmly referred to as the "K"), located at Jordan House, is a student-run space (under the direction of Dining Services and the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life) that serves as a cooking, eating and meeting facility for everyone interested in the Jewish tradition and community. The "K" model is a co-op and students who participate all play a role in the meal preparation, purchasing of food, cleanup and meal planning. Two students are appointed annually to be the coordinators of the kitchen; it is eclectic, vegetarian (with plenty of vegan options), healthy and, of course, kosher. It is not uncommon to find the space teeming with choppers, would-be chefs, dishwashers, and other helpers on any Friday morning or afternoon.

During the academic year, special holiday events and other occasional Jewish programming activities are held at the Kosher Co-op Kitchen and all students are welcome to attend.

Kosher food is also served at Cutter/Ziskind dining room.
