Northeastern University's Inter­na­tional Vil­lage dining hall reopened following renovations to add new sta­tions for diners with food aller­gies as well as for those preferring kosher and halal dining options. There is also a new Deli-​​To-​​Go program.

The kosher sta­tion will offer both hot and cold entrées, veg­e­tarian sides and parve (meat- and dairy-free) menu items. It will be super­vised by an on-​​site mash­giach and the Rab­binical Council of New Eng­land. Shabbat meal options will be avail­able for Friday dinner and Sat­urday lunch and dinner. Pre­vi­ously, kosher food on campus had been lim­ited to frozen meals.

The new Zone 7 sta­tion has been des­ig­nated specif­i­cally for diners with food aller­gies and sen­si­tiv­ities. It features menu items that are free of seven major food aller­gens: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shell­fish, gluten and soy. Halal pro­tein choices are also avail­able upon request at Zone 7, as well as well as at two other campus dining facilities.

The new “Deli-​​To-​​Go” pro­gram allows diners to order a variety of sand­wiches and wraps at the front desk without having to swipe in and enter the full facility. It runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week.
