What to do if you are on a business trip, didn’t bring along any kosher food, and a kosher meal is nowhere in sight? Try the snack car on an Amtrak train, which is exactly what I did on an Amtrak from Washington to New York. In addition to the typical Lays Potato Chips, Coke, pretzels, and peanuts, you might get lucky with a Sabra hummus container.
What an accomplishment for organizations like the OU that you will never go hungry anywhere in America. I always make it a habit to point out the kosher symbol to a staffer so that they know the next time someone asks. On this particular trip, the attendant said “sure I know, we have people asking for kosher stuff on almost every trip.” Boy, we have come a long way!
