cibo-express-kosher-jfkOne of the major questions I keep getting asked is where to find kosher options at NYC’s airports. Not only are JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark airports major domestic & international hubs for dozens of airlines, but hundreds of thousands of kosher keeping Jews use these airports each year.

Thankfully, there are currently abundant kosher prepared food options at all major NY/NJ airports packaged under the FRESKO and Yummy Sandwich labels. Travelers can find a huge variety of sandwiches, salads, and wraps – all under the kosher supervision of the Star-K. All breads are Pas Yisroel and dairy is Cholov Yisroel.

Fresko / Yummy Sandwich menu items include yogurt parfaits, grilled chicken salad, southern honey BBQ chicken wrap, shaved fresh mozzarella sandwich, tuna salad wrap, tuna fish sandwich, grilled tofu wrap, grilled chicken shawarma wrap, tuna salad on greens, organic quinoa salad, layered Capelli d’Angelo salad, herb grilled chicken sandwich, greek feta wrap, classic egg salad sandwich, fresh roasted turkey sandwich, cajun turkey sandwich and more!

You can find these offering at the following locations on Sunday through Friday (they do not make deliveries on Shabbat, so don’t expect to find much on Motzei Shabbat flights):

    Thanks for this info, Dani Klein.

    EWR also has Fresko sandwiches in Terminal A (and possibly B, but I haven’t checked). Also worth noting that JFK and EWR (and I imagine LGA too) have restaurants that are nearby and will deliver to the airports.

    Anything at LAX that you know of?

    • Hi Rabbi – that’s the next on my list to blog about … there are Coffee Bean & Tea Leafs that serve prepackaged kosher food in certain areas of LAX. Will blog about details soon.

    Another winning tip Dani!! Keep ‘me coming!! I found Kosher sandwiches at the CIBO Express at JFK Terminal 2 ahead of this afternoon’s flight to Chicago ;)

    Good stuff. While it’s all just pre-packaged, the NY area airport kosher food situation is better today than any time I can remember in the past 2 – 3 decades.
