As a college student in a small liberal arts college; there are no kosher options, little vegetarian/vegan options, and only 20% of the food is locally sourced. Also, a meal plan in required in your tuition so you must eat at the cafeteria. There is no option to cook and buy your own food. So what I decided was that I will not eat meat at the cafeteria and when I eat dairy products I will say this quick prayer:
Thank you God, Creator of all things, for this food. I pray that this food was procured, handled, and delivered in a just way. If this is not the case, please forgive me for my ignorance. I will continue to strive daily to repair the world in word and deed. Tzedek, Tzedek, Tirdof.
