Food on Campus Policy
Ma’ayanot is committed to assuring that we support our students’ health and growth holistically – including the academic, religious, spiritual, social and emotional goals of all of our students. This goal is an intentional part of planning our use of space, the music we play, the speakers we invite, and the programs we run.
It is vital that students have healthy opportunities to eat and we are so fortunate to have a beautiful space for breakfast and lunch and for hanging out or eating during free periods.
Most students bring lunch from home and may take advantage of the refrigerators and microwaves available in the Student Center. Students should bring their own utensils.
Students will also be able to order lunch from Monday – Thursday. Lunch will be delivered to the school by a different restaurant each day and must be ordered and paid for in advance. More information on the lunch program can be found below. There are coffee and vending machines for snacks and drinks available for students.
Beginning the second semester of Freshman year, students may also choose to go off campus to a local kosher eatery. Students who choose to go off campus for lunch must be sure to return on time for class and may not bring their lunch into class to eat.
Food on Campus
Students are only permitted to eat meals in the Student Center and outdoors. Students are always responsible to clean up after themselves. Meals may not be eaten in the classrooms, the Beit Midrash, or the Library during free periods, lunch times, or class time. Specific AP courses which meet during lunch will be permitted to eat during class. Students are permitted to snack discreetly during class with their teacher’s permission. Any student who has a medical concern about eating during the day should discuss this possible accommodation with Mrs. Braun, our Dean of Students.
We expect that all food and beverages brought on campus will be kosher with reliable certification. It has come to our attention that the kashrut status of varied Starbucks drinks has changed, please consult with your shul Rabbi before bringing Starbucks drinks on campus.
We do not allow any commercial food delivery services (Uber Eats, GrubHub etc.) at any time during the school day.
