Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the ValleyNews and JTA on August 31, 2015.

"Students at Dartmouth College are petitioning administrators to institute a higher standard of kosher dining, arguing the college’s current methods of food preparation don’t meet widely held standards in the Orthodox Jewish community."
"A small group of Orthodox students say their religious dietary restrictions essentially prevent them from eating at Dartmouth, even though the school has a designated kosher cafeteria."
"They worry that because of “leniencies” on the part of the college’s current kosher certifier, a service called Tablet-K, Orthodox students are avoiding applying to Dartmouth."
Petitioners said they would not be satisfied unless the college switched from Tablet-K to another service entirely, such as Vaad Harabonim of New England, the agency that initially oversaw the Pavilion. B
"But administrators who toured the Pavilion kitchen with a reporter on Sunday appeared attached to Tablet-K and to the rabbi who serves as the agency’s chief certifier."
"Dartmouth is the sole Ivy League school not to offer a glatt kosher standard."
