Abbey Memorial Chapel:

Eliot House

The Eliot House Lounge and the Eliot House Kitchen, Kosher Kitchen and Halal Kitchens may be reserved for events by Eliot House supported faith groups.

The Eliot House kitchens (Eliot House, Kosher or Halal kitchens) are considered by the Town of South Hadley as Commercially Licensed Kitchens and the Federal, State and local ServSafe Food Regulations must be followed.  Those using the kitchens must have "Person in Charge, (PIC)" training from our Kitchen Manager prior to using the kitchen.  The training is offered in the beginning of each semester and also right before Passover.  If interested in this training, email John Higgins to receive training dates as they occur.

The Eliot House lounge can also be used without access to any of the kitchens.  The only food items that can be served without the use of the kitchens are bottled drinks, store-bought cookies, chips, or whole fruit.  Other foods may be potentially hazardous foods which would require the use of the kitchen.
