The celebration of Ramadan began on April 2 and continues until May 2. Syracuse University Food Services will provide accommodating Ramadan meals on campus for students who observe the holiday.
Ernie Davis Dining Hall has an iftar meal in the reserved private dining room. Two large refrigerators will have additional snacks, drinks and sandwiches that can be taken to-go. Keone Weigl, the Marketing and Promotions Manager of SU Food Services, said one other choice of halal meat is available.
Graham, Brockway, Sadler and Shaw dining halls will provide regular meals, such as the salad bar and bagels, during their regular hours of operation. Brockway and Shaw are open from 7:30 a.m to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m on weekends. While on weekdays Ernie, Graham, and Sadler are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.
Halal Shack in the Schine Student center is another option for students observing Ramadan. Halal Shack is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The Jewish holiday of Passover will be from April 15 to April 23. SU Food Services said they will prepare in a similar way and continue to accomodate students celebrating Ramadan. Students keeping Passover may use meal swipes at the Winnick Hillel Center on Walnut Avenue during Passover lunch and dinner hours.
Meal swipes, dining dollars, guest meals and credit cards may be used at all five dining halls on campus.
