Halal and Kosher

One of the clearest ways you can help students feel they fully belong at MIT is to provide food that matches their ethical convictions and their religious identities.

According to MIT Dining, 8-10% of MIT undergraduate students choose a vegetarian or vegan diet. Some base their vegetarian diet on Hindu dietary laws, and many more avoid animal products out of ethical concerns.
MIT Chaplains estimate that 4% of undergraduates follow the halal dietary rules of Islam, and 1% follow the kosher rules of Judaism.
Since many people are less familiar with halal and kosher diets, we offer this guide (Download PDF) to ordering inclusive meals for your events.
