Halal Dining

WMU Dining Services is working to increase the halal options available in Dining Centers. Currently, Dining is offering halal-certified chicken in a variety of ways. This chicken is purchased raw, and is stored, prepped, cooked and served using specific yellow-handled utensils and equipment, where appropriate.

Halal Breakfast Options

During weekdays in the Dining Centers, students are able to order omelets or eggs cooked to order, from 7 - 10:30 a.m. To indicate that precautions need to be taken to not come into contact with any pork products or cooking areas, please check the box titled "Vegetarian Preparation." This indicates to staff that the order cannot come into contact with any cooking surface or cooking utensil that has also touched pork products.
