Kosher/Halaal Meals

Mission Park features a “Kosher-Halaal Korner” in which kosher/halaal foods are always available. A refrigerator is stocked with kosher/halaal entrees.  Additionally, kosher/halaal deli meats, all-beef hot dogs, hamburger patties and various breads and condiments are available. Equipment, including the refrigerator, a microwave, toaster oven, and grill are dedicated exclusively to the storage and heating of kosher/halaal products.

In order to maintain the integrity of this service: please do not bring any regular dining hall food into this area; do not bring any plates, knives, forks, or other dishes into this area; do not use any of the equipment for any other food other than Kosher-Halaal Korner items.

Dining Services has also begun to include kosher/halaal sandwiches at Grab ‘n’ Go, the take-out lunch option on campus.  Halaal options are also available daily in Whitmans’ and the ’82 Grill.

Available Kosher Meals:

  • Chicken with Peppers
  • Balsamic Salmon
  • Steak with Mushrooms
  • Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Vegetarian Meals

Both vegan and vegetarian entrées are available in all dining halls. Tofu, tempeh, nuts and seeds, legumes, and whole grains, as well as a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables are always on hand. Specialty products, including a variety of dairy alternatives, can be found in small coolers in each dining hall. Most food that is vegetarian or vegan is marked as such. If you have questions regarding ingredients in food, please ask staff or call the Executive Chef at x2050. A useful site for researching vegetarian recipes is http://botw.org/top/Home/Cooking/Vegetarian/.

Gluten-Free Meals and Soy-Free Vegan Meals

If you have celiac disease, please contact the college dietitian, Maria Cruz, in the Thompson Health Center or by e-mail at maria.cruz@williams.edu.  We want to maintain communication with you throughout the year to understand your specific needs and monitor how things are going for you.

You may order gluten-free and soy-free vegan meals in Mission Park and Driscoll Dining Halls. Each meal includes a fresh or frozen entree (microwave ovens are right on hand), fresh vegetable, and a starch.

Deadlines are 8 am for lunch and 12 noon for dinner. If you miss the deadline, plan on an additional wait while we prepare your meal. You may also place meal orders several days ahead — but please keep track of your orders!

We strive to have all items available, but occasionally a product listed is not available due to a delivery problem. Please be sure we have a contact number to reach you so we can confirm a substitute.

When you arrive at the dining hall, please alert the checker who will let the kitchen staff know you are here.
