If Halal and Kosher options were offered, I would eat at the Seminole Dining Halls
This petition made change with 632 supporters!
On January 10th, 2018, I was able to eat FSU’s first ever Halal food option at the Figg Dining Hall!
However, out of the thousands of Muslims that have/are/will attend FSU, I am the FIRST one (according to Seminole Dining) that has made this request for Halal food. Unfortunately, many Muslims and Jewish students with dietary restrictions do not even bother to request dining halls to offer Halal/Kosher meat because they think that it is not even an option. Today, I was able to eat Halal meat, but so far this is only an individual accommodation- UNLESS other Muslim and Jewish students express their interest in eating at the dining halls if Halal/Kosher meat options were available to EVERYONE. Did you know, many other smaller universities offer this option in their dining halls, and FSU still does not?
If you’re a Muslim or Jewish student that is attending or is planning on attending FSU, or if you just love the fact that we are making FSU more diverse and inclusive which makes you also want to eat at the dining halls, then sign my petition. Once Sodexo (aka Seminole Dining) sees how many people would like this option, they will begin offering Halal and Kosher meat to the public instead of just to one individual.
