April 08, 2011

University Park, Pa. -- For the third year, the Passover Buffet at Waring Dining Commons will be open to Jewish students, faculty and staff who adhere to kosher dietary laws. Meals can be purchased with the Campus Meal Plan, as well as cash and LionCash+. No payment is required in advance.

Beginning on April 19, the Passover area will serve lunch and dinner through Passover week. The lunch menu will feature a dairy menu, which includes matzoh pizza, vegetables, tossed salad, cheeses, fresh fruits and more. For dinner, students will enjoy a meat menu, which will feature baked chicken, matzoh ball soup, vegetables, tossed salad, fresh fruit, desserts and more.

Kosher for Passover Meals

Dates: April 19 lunch through April 26 lunch

Prices: Lunch – $10.75 (350 meal plan dining dollars); Dinner and Sunday Brunch – $12.50 (415 meal plan dining dollars)

The weeklong service line will be the result of a spirited collaboration between students, alumni, Penn State Food Services and a local rabbi. Rabbi Joel Roth is the legal authority for Kashrut, which is the dietary laws prescribed for Jewish people, at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Waring's buffet line will be under his rabbinical supervision.
