THA observes the laws of Kashrut. Students may bring a dairy or parve lunch. No student may bring meat-dairy combinations. Food brought into the school must meet the standards of Kashrut. Any meat product brought to school must come clearly labeled with an accepted hechsher (kosher stamp). Prepared foods purchased at 5th Street Deli are permitted at school but must be in original packaging displaying the Kosher stamp or seal from 5th Street Deli. Prepared foods from the JCC are also allowed.
As a rule, all fruits, pure fruit juices (except grape), and vegetables are acceptable. So are any packaged foods marked U or K. Consult with the Rabbi before bringing any other type of food (or anything you are unsure of) into the school. He would be happy to answer any questions regarding Kashrut.
