Dickinson College Dining Services provides the KOVE station in the HUB Dining Hall.  The KOVE is our Kosher + Vegan option on campus.  It houses separate kosher meat and kosher dairy kitchens under the Star-K Certification, an internationally recognized kosher-certification agency based in Baltimore, and overnseen by two mashgichot (kosher food preparation superviosrs), Louise Powers and Ricki Gold.  Everything in the KOVE is kosher.  They serve vegan foods, but they are kosher vegan foods.  All food prepared and served in the KOVE meet the strictest standards of kosher food.  Dickinson is proud of the inclusive nature of the campus community.
