Language School Special Dietary Request Form

Once you arrive on campus, it is your responsibility to identify yourself to the chef from your assigned dining hall and explain that you have submitted a dietary request form. We are accustomed to working with a variety of dietary requests, so please let us know how we can help you find foods that are safe for you to eat.

Middlebury College Dining Services makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with known food allergies. Ingredient lists are provided for every menu item for each meal period. We are committed to stringent food handling practices, and we instruct our food production and service staff on the severity of food allergies and intolerances.

However, the volume of meals served makes it impossible for us to guarantee the accurate labeling of all ingredients and to completely satisfy all dietary requests.

Kosher  Meals

Middlebury College Dining Services offers kosher meals from our certified kosher kitchen. Kosher food is prepared by Dining Services, and the kitchen is overseen by the Rabbinical Council of New England and supervised by Chabad of Vermont. Should you need to contact the Rabbinical Council regarding a specific question about our program prior to your arrival for the summer, the contact information is:

Rabbi Moshe Kaufman
Kashrus Administrator - KVH Kosher
Rabbinical Council of New England 
665 Beacon St Boston, MA 02215
Tel: (617) 426-2139 Direct: (617) 426-2139 x 103 Cell: (617) 651-1584 Fax: (617) 426-6268

Our kosher meal program is designed to provide lunch and dinner meals for Sunday dinner through Friday dinner at Atwater dining hall only. Special breakfast meals are not included in this plan, but the Atwater dining hall provides some suitable options. Students in schools assigned to Ross and Proctor dining halls may pick up kosher meals at Atwater dining hall. Middlebury College absorbs the costs of operating an on-site kosher kitchen rather than passing that cost along to participating students. This form sets an intention that you will take the kosher meals prepared for you. Should you decide to withdraw from the kosher meal plan for any reason, please notify either your school coordinator or bilingual as soon as possible.

Meals always include a variety of fresh ingredients, and we purchase from local producers when possible. All of our prepared kosher meals will be meat and parve, no dairy.  All meals will be transported in heated cabinets and served to you using disposable service ware.

In order for us to accurately plan for the kosher kitchen to open and operate for the 7-week program (which begins June 29) we will need to know of your intention to take kosher meals before June 29th. 

We will make available pre-prepared packaged kosher meals for those students attending the 8 week schools until the Kosher Kitchen opens June 29th.

If you would like to see sample menus from the kosher kitchen, please contact Bo Cleveland, Assistant Director, at or 802-443-5349.  Anyone who wishes to learn more about the ingredients of any of the items we serve is welcome to visit our Kosher Kitchen and speak with the chef manager.

If you have special dietary needs, please complete this form and send it to your School’s Coordinator by June 15th.
