Halal food hits campus
The University’s multicultural cohort is reflected by new initiatives that welcome students from all countries, including providing halal fare at campus eateries.
Muslim students and lecturers can now enjoy a wide range of halal fare at the Monash Meeting Point in the Campus Centre including biryani, rice, chicken, meat dishes and cakes. Signs are displayed to indicate the food is halal, and it is separate from non-halal food.
Mr Mohamed Mohideen, a lecturer in the Department of Microbiology and member of the Monash University Mosque Committee, said he was pleased Monash's Islamic community was now able to enjoy halal food on campus.
