With an expected surge in domestic travel this summer due to COVID-19, Orthodox Union (OU) Kosher, one of the world’s largest kosher certification agencies, has launched a free online kosher food and travel guide to help Jews follow dietary and ritual observance while away from home. The guide offers a listing of kosher food products that one can find during their travels across the country. Additional resources include a restaurant guide, a list of fountain and frozen beverages available at convenience stores, Coca-Cola Freestyle machines which are certified by OU Kosher, and a section dedicated to kosher grilling, which also addresses questions such as whether or not a grill can be koshered for those who are renting homes during their travels. The “Traveling” section includes information about in-room hotel kitchen appliances and how they can be used. For those looking for a minyan during their travels, the site links to the OU synagogue finder.
