The Vaad HaKashruth of Kansas City is a community service organization composed of Rabbinic and lay leadership. Its mission is to facilitate and make available kosher food for the public through kosher certification, supervision, education, and inspection, for caterers, wholesale and retail food vendors, and food production companies in the Kansas City region.
HyVee pampers Kosher guests
Hy-Vee is pampering its kosher guests with some treats. We just worked with the Italian kitchen to prepare take-and-bake pizzas. As usual, the crusts are dairy-free but produced on dairy equipment. The cheese is Cholov Yisroel. These are located in the pizza cooler immediately to your right when you enter the store. Please make sure your pizza box is sealed by the Vaad to ensure it is kosher, and that it has not been tampered with. These have a shelf life of one week, but we know they will fly off the shelves pretty quickly, so get them while they last.
In addition, Hy-Vee is running its very own "Taste of Kosher" food show next Wednesday, September 18th, 4 - 7pm. There will be tasting of all sorts of kosher foods, and Ellenberg catering will be demonstrating with chicken shawarma. We will provide kosher supervision for the event so you can be confident that all preparations and products meet with Vaad standards. See here for more details.
Henhouse Kosher Deli Still Working Hard
The Henhouse Deli is still working hard during the three days a week it is staffed, to meet the needs of the community and fill all orders. Please be patient if things are a little slower than usual. The smaller staff is working longer hours to prepare your food. We expect normal hours to resume in October.
