Kosher Food

Wake Forest students enjoy lunch in the Reynolda Fresh Food Company (the Pit)

All of Hillel events are dairy and/or kosher. On campus, kosher food is available from Hillel and in advance through Aramark, Wake Forest’s food service company. There are many certified kosher products offered in the many food outlets on campus. The “pit” does provide kosher-style meals, including roasted chicken, latkes and matzoh ball soup, as well as Matzah and other Passover fare during Pesach.
