For those students participating in our school dining program, we offer high-quality dishes made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Menus rotate on a monthly basis. Our meat and dairy kitchens supervised by the Michigan Kashruth Council of Michigan, and all food is strictly kosher. A soup, entree, and full salad bar are offered every day. Homebaked goods are also offered. A sandwich is offered daily. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are also available. The lunch program is nut-free.
For others, only dairy or pareve food may be brought into school. On Wednesdays and Fridays, meat is served to those participating in our lunch program; otherwise, Hillel is meat-free. (Note: according to Jewish law, fish is not considered meat, so kosher fish such as tuna and salmon are always allowed).
All packaged food must be certified kosher; therefore, when shopping, please make sure packaged food and prepared food bears a kosher symbol. A list of such symbols may be found here
Our standards are meant to ensure that every student and family affiliated with Hillel feels comfortable and welcome in our miznon (cafe). We hope this atmosphere or respect helps students to perform mitzvot, and thus deepen their relationship with God. Therefore, we ask Hillel families, regardless of personal practice, to abide by our standard of kashrut.
