Glatt Kosher Fare Comes to Football in Super Form

Englewood, New Jersey… Add Football’s biggest games of the year to the list of sports that now routinely offer glatt kosher food to fans. Kosher Sports has been granted the right to serve the kosher fare at this year’s Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl games at Dolphin Stadium in Miami. “This is the first time there will be a glatt kosher food offering at the Pro Bowl or Super Bowl,” says Jonathan Katz, president of Kosher Sports. KSI will be grilling Abeles & Heymann Frankfurters, Italian Sausages, and featuring their Knoblewurst and Grilled Salami Sliders. Serving glatt kosher food to professional sports and entertainment venues since 2003, KSI is the exclusive kosher caterers at Citi Field, US Open Tennis Championships, M&T Bank Stadium, Lincoln Financial Field, Land Shark Stadium, Prudential Center, Oriole Park and others. Kosher Sports is under the kosher supervision of the Star-K Kosher Certification, based in Baltimore, MD. Sports teams across the country are being asked to provide the food, especially by some of their wealthier season ticket holders, a sports source told KosherToday. The kosher stands are often the place for organizing a minyan or setting up a business appointment. Observers note that many non-Jews frequently buy the food despite the broad food choices available to them at sporting events.
