Religious Dining

Smith respects the role of food in the lives of students, not only for physical sustenance, but as an expression of culture and faith. The Center for Religious & Spiritual Life works with Dining Services to provide daily and holiday meals in accordance with Jewish and Muslim religious requirements (see Dietary Accommodations).

If you have questions about whether our dining meets your religious requirements, please contact Dining Services or send an email to Matilda Cantwell.


Our Kosher-Halal dining facility at Cutter-Ziskind serves lunch and dinner five days a week. The facility is supervised by David Aminia, a mashgiach trained through the Orthodox Va'ad in Springfield. In addition, Zabihah meat is provided in a separate bay in the dining room for Muslim students. Visit the Dining Services website to make a reservation.

Kosher Co-op Kitchen

The Smith College Jewish Community Kosher Kitchen (“the K”) at Jordan House serves kosher vegetarian co-op meals on Friday evenings and holidays.

Vegan & Vegetarian

The Northrop-Gillett dining room serves vegetarian and vegan meals three times a day, seven days a week. In addition, vegetarian options can be found at most dining halls for most meals.
