Kosher & Halal Dining

Halal Dining

Students keeping halal will find the following information to support them:

  • All menu items containing pork, pork by-products (gelatin, etc) are labeled with our pork symbol.
  • Any menu items containing alcohol are labeled with the alcohol symbol.

Campus Dining makes every effort to not use alcohol in our menu items. There are rare instances that a sauce or pre-made ingredient will contain alcohol, but we try to avoid this. Campus Dining does use ingredients such as soy sauce or certain extracts that use alcohol as part of the extraction process. We have consulted with Ossama Bahoul, Ph.D. from the Center of Nashville, on including these ingredients in our cooking as evidenced by the article here: “Alcohol can be Halal (Allowed) in Islam”

These certain ingredients are not labeled with the alcohol symbol but alcohol can be found in the ingredient statement in NetNutrition.

We make every effort to ensure our whole muscle poultry and beef products are Halal. They are labeled in NetNutrition via the halal symbol. Current certificates are available upon request by emailing
