Wondering how you can be released from the Drexel meal plan? See this quote from the Drexel Website: Accommodations for Religious Reasons
If seeking a dining or housing accommodation for religious reasons, students are required to complete the request form (below) and attach a letter from their spiritual advisor. The letter must be dated, on official letterhead, name the leader's position in the place of worship, include the spiritual advisor's non-electronic signature and explain in detail the rationale behind the request. The letter must also be specific to the student and their needs. Students must be proactive and request an accommodation in a timely manner, as such requests will undergo Spiritual and Religious Life's committee review process (approximately 10 business days). For more information, click here. Any accommodation requests submitted after the two-week deadline, i.e. the second Friday of each term, will not be processed until the following academic term.
 
 
TESTIMONIALS  

    During my first two terms at Drexel, I made the rookie mistake of not signing up for the Chabad meal plan. Instead, I decided to survive on a nutritionally questionable diet of pizza and candy bars. It wasn’t until joining the kosher meal plan at Chabad that I realized how much I actually missed eating actual food [especially meat] during the week. Instead of making a pilgrimage off campus, Jewish Drexel students now have access to delicious and filling kosher meals at their local Chabad house, a great place to hang once you’re done eating. With a combination of food, friends, and Judaism you can’t go wrong!

-Josh Weiss

    College can be a very stressful environment especially for an observant Jew. However, knowing that I can depend on Chabad to provide a great kosher meal and a place where I can hang out with my best friends really relieves some of the stress.

–Stephanie Sussman

    Moussia knows exactly what I like and what I don’t like. She always makes sure I have something to eat

–Leora Rychik

    I’m so happy I signed up for the meal plan, it’s so much easier to walk the short distance to Chabad for a hot full course meal. Being a student takes up a lot of your time and having to worry about food on top of it is very stressful. Now I take a much needed break at night to eat a delicious and nutritious meal and socialize with friends. I’m much happier, less stressed, and still keep on top of my work.”

–Shy Wasserman

    The Chabad meal plan is the most reliable source for kosher dinner on campus. Homemade hot meals and soup are available everyday. Whether it is Moussia's palatable pepper steak, savory schnitzel, or a tasty Taco Tuesday, Chabad is the place to be for every dinner. Beyond the great food is a family dinner setting, the perfect way to unwind from a long busy day at Drexel and catch up with friends.
