University of Houston Dining Services now offers halal and kosher items at the Cougar Xpress Markets in the Student Center, Cougar Village and Calhoun Lofts.
Customers now can purchase a convenient halal or kosher snack such as SkinnyPop Popcorn, chocolate-covered fruit snacks or Golden Oreos.
“The snacks and prepared meals offer our customers a one-stop shopping experience during a lunch break or on the way to class,” said Sybil Reado, UH Dining convenience store manager.
Other items include frozen, prepared meals like a Korean-style taco with halal chicken in a corn tortilla or halal chicken tikka masala served with basmati rice.
Each store offers a dedicated section for the halal and kosher items. Store associates can assist customers who may need help locating them.
