Eating Kosher at a Non-Kosher Event

You may eat a kosher catered meal at an otherwise non-kosher event as long as:
  • Your food is obviously different from the non-kosher food, and
  • You have kosher dishes and utensils to use.
Your food must be separate from the non-kosher food.
Reason
To avoid mar'it ayin--the appearance of doing something improper.
