Pesach/Passover 2024 Specials in Baldwin

The Jewish holiday of Passover or Pesach, commemorating the Exodus of the Israelites from slavery in biblical Egypt to freedom, begins on April 22nd at sundown and will continue through sundown on April 30th. To celebrate, Jews traditionally fast from chametz (food that is leavened) and gather with family and friends to retell the Exodus story through food, scripture, music, and other traditions at seders (ceremonial dinners). In honor of Passover, Metz dining is providing several traditional foods in lower Baldwin, including but not limited to matzo ball soup, deviled eggs, pickled beets, horseradish, charoset, celery, and matzo. Flourless cake is also available upon request for the first two nights. Passover items are placed in a designated area of the salad bar to minimize cross-contamination risk, and everything is labeled.

If you need any assistance with nutrition while fasting, please email campus dietitian Ashley Palmer (
