Tufts University opens new kosher deli on campus

The new kosher deli opened on Monday, featuring menu items such as sandwiches, potato salad, potato knishes and more.

Dec. 5—Tufts’ first kosher deli, originally slated for completion last spring, opened yesterday at 11 a.m. in the Jumbo Express storage space near the Mayer Campus Center.

Dining Services last fall announced plans for the take-out eatery, which offers traditional New York-style deli foods for lunch and dinner.

Ashley Haldane, who manages the kosher program at Tufts, said the deli represents a step toward the expansion of kosher options for students who practice the dietary restriction. Students who keep kosher could previously only receive kosher meals at Tufts Hillel on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons.
