Roundup Of NBA, NFL, NHL, And MLB Teams That Have A Kosher Food Stand

This list has been updated for 2017, please post a comment if you know of any other changes.


It’s hard to find a comprehensive list of kosher stands in sports stadiums, so here is a list of sports teams that have a kosher food stand.

It’s also tough to keep the list updated, so if you know of stands that no longer exist or new ones that have opened please post a comment!

Be sure to do your own research on Rabbinical supervision before heading to the game.

Bear in mind that some stadiums may have multiple kosher food options.  For example at Yankee Stadium there is the regular kosher stand and then there is a full no-expenses spared catered event with all-you-can-eat gourmet kosher food that is free for Legends Suites ticketholders.  The Legends Suites kosher food are even under a different rabbinical supervising agency then the regular kosher stand.  The Legends Suites menu also changes on a daily basis.  I was invited to sit in Legends Suites at an Indians game several years ago and wrote about it in this post.  Apparently it has gotten even better since then. If you are sitting in the Delta Suites or the Field MVP club you can also purchase food from Legends Suites.

    The Detroit Lions had a stand under the Detroit Vaad’s supervision at one point, but are not currently. Are they under someone else’s supervision now?

    Staples Center in LA (Clippers, Lakers and Kings) has packaged kosher sandwiches and wraps, etc available in Outtakes near section 104. Requested Kosher food when I had SPG suite seats a couple weeks ago – they gave us $50 worth of vouchers to use at that concession stand to get kosher food

    Most stadiums let you bring in outside food, so I’m only counting hot food in this list.

    Funny how despite Toronto’s overall abysmal kosher food scene, they manage to have great kosher concessions stands at all major league games.

    @Alexander: The Toronto teams are owned by Rogers and Bell Canada, so there is no frum ownership. The kosher stand for the Blue Jays was actually started in 2004 when I was doing work for them and insisted on a kosher stand. Same for the Florida Panthers a few years later.

    Hi Dan, Off topic question: You always write that a business amex card does not report on your credit. To which extent? Just the spending amount or also going over the limit, or requesting a credit increase has no effect?

    If it is still open, the Kosher stand at Soldier Field (Bears) is not certified by the CRC, not sure who they are certified by (if at all) at the moment.

    Cool to know that most of the games I went to had a kosher stand!
    Now the hardest part about these is where they are located? Would love to have a detailed post about where each stand is located on what level and near which row and column? Or do the vendors move around every so often?
    (while we’re at that with the location, most have a minyan for mincha and maariv which would be the most amazing info to know! (worth a million $s that info, nut would take lots of time and effort! Just expounding on the ideas.. You never kknow a dream come true! Lol

Do you have a diary or something f similar that you write in?thank I’m trying to get inspired to write my own

    In addition to what myi asked about location and minyans, I think It would be great to get menus and ownership names (For instance: Carlos and Gabby’s has the concession at MSG – Knicks and Rangerss) for each venue to know what choices we’d have at the games.

    the l.a. lakers clippers and kings do not have a kosher food stand but they do sell star-k certified prepraed food- sandwiches, salads, falafel. decently priced for a stadium

    Interesting that MLB has the most Kosher stands- even though they’re always 2 games per week on Fri/Sat, whereas the NFL is lagging even though games are rarely on Shabbos. I wonder if it’s due to MLB being more “frum” or if it has to do with the number of overall home games (81 minus Shabbos games) vs. 10 (8 plus 2 pre-season) minus a rare shabbos.

    Interesting the New England Patriots have no Kosher food listed. Is that currently accurate?
