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 at the PODS (convenience stores), from Hillel and in advance through Aramark Catering (Wake Forest’s food service company), and at Global Food tabling station special events in the Pit.  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.
