By Margie Pensak

Catching a red-eye flight back to JFK after a business meeting in L.A.? Landing in Newark at 5:50 a.m. after a 12-1/2 hour flight from visiting the grandkids in Israel? Leaving for LaGuardia too early to eat breakfast before going on that long-awaited Saint Martin Island vacation? Have no fear: Fresko Green Label is here. Now, the estimated 1.5 million kosher travelers who fly domestically and internationally from JFK, LaGuardia and Newark airports can avail themselves of a large variety of kosher prepared food options packaged under the Fresko and Yummy Sandwich labels, under Star-K Kosher supervision.

No longer do you have to subsist on pretzels and candy that, thankfully, are marked with a reliable kosher symbol. The Star-K certified Fresko/Yummy Sandwich menu includes items such as grilled chicken salad, southern honey barbecue chicken wrap, fresh roasted turkey sandwich, cajun turkey sandwich, grilled chicken shawarma wrap, herb grilled chicken sandwich, tuna salad on greens, tuna salad wrap, tuna fish sandwich, grilled tofu wrap, organic quinoa salad, layered Capelli D’Angelo salad, Greek feta wrap, shaved fresh mozzarella sandwich, classic egg salad sandwich, and yogurt parfaits. All breads are pas Yisroel and all dairy items are cholov Yisroel.

  1. while i think its great to have kosher food so readily available . if the prices are going to be competitive (not to non kosher) but to local stores in bklyn or queens. we all know these products are going to be way over priced because they can.

  2. Fresko is also available at Newark Terminal A near gate A15. JetBlue and Southwest flights use this area. Also, you cannot get to Terminal C at Newark from any other terminal without going through security again.

  3. just a short comment w/re to pricing: #1, you’re probably right. it will be way overpriced! but, why should it be that way? i guarantee you, if they charge a reasonable price without trying to rip anyone off (“because they can”), they may not see an immediate windfall on each item sold, but they will definitely see sales soar through volume. profit via volume sales are more often than not preferable to selling less at a higher profit. just remember it’s one jew selling to another. what enjoyment is there in ripping off “acheinu bais yisroel”?
