Kosher Pizza Night
Make plans to join us for kosher pizza night tomorrow, Tuesday November 5th at Hy-Vee. As usual, kosher pizza will be available from 5-7pm, priced as before, $13 a pie, $5.99 for a meal deal (three slices and a can of soda) or $1.99 a slice. Gluten Free pies must be ordered in advance, and will only be available during the first part of the evening. Salads will be available while stocks last.
We at the Vaad wish you a blessed and prosperous year, a gmar chatima tova. I first want to report on our recent campaign and thank you for your support. We did not have the time to advertise in advance and we also are well aware that there are many organizations and causes that rely on support from all of us. Nevertheless, with your help our campaign succeeded in exceeding our goal, with contributions and pledges bringing us past the magic number. We are grateful that our community is invested in preserving appropriate standards of kashrut and we remain committed to continue being a resource to the community, providing kosher services and expanding the available offerings.
We expect that by now many members of the community have met Leo, who is the new Mashgiach and manager of the kosher deli at hen house. Leo comes with significant deli experience, and we are happy to see the deli return to full service. If you haven't yet, please make sure to say hello and welcome to Leo during your next shop at hen house.
Those who shop at Hy-Vee have been gratified to see that products have been consolidated into one kosher cooler. The kosher aisle for dry groceries is in the health market section, as before, and the kosher cooler is further back in the store, more or less in a straight line from the dry kosher aisle. The kosher freezer remains where it has been, the first stand-up freezer on the far right of the store.
We have made arrangements for kosher take-and-bake pizzas to be stocked each week with consistency, beginning Monday October 28th. Kosher pizzas will be stocked in the pizza cooler each Monday and they will be available through the week until stocks run out. Stocks will be replenished the following Monday. We hope this will benefit the community. Please support this initiative so that Hy-Vee will continue to provide this service.
Finally, with winter closing in we are looking at comfort foods that meet our kosher standards. I don't know if we can match the range of ice creams we were able to approve over the summer, but we'll certainly try our best. Please keep warm.
Gmar chatima tova,
