Israel Envoy Wants Kosher Food at UN Cafeterias

September 26, 2016: The The Forward:

Danny Danon, Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations has written the UN Secretary-General that the U.N. cafeterias offer halal, vegetarian and vegan selections but not kosher. "He also requested that the institution act to lower the high cost of kosher catering at the United Nations by allowing more kosher caterers to work at its headquarters. Danon said that the Israeli diplomatic mission, which only orders kosher food, is limited by the U.N. to one supplier and pays about 40 percent more than other missions who have a choice of caterers."
