Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) no longer has to get by on granola bars.
Following a push from a former congressional intern, after a years-long absence, kosher food is once again among the available chow in the Dirksen Senate Office Building cafeteria.
As of Tuesday, Lieberman, who adheres to a kosher diet as an Orthodox Jew, hadn’t yet had a chance to try out the new nosh.
The retiring lawmaker, who has served in the upper chamber since 1989, says until now, he’s subsisted on a limited number of goodies: “I have a steady supply of granola bars, and Cliff bars, and salads. A lot of salads.”
