comment What does R' Feinstein say about eating kosher food in a non-kosher restaurant?
@SethJ: Is this question a subquestion of that one? Sort of, yes. But still, they shouldn't be merged: the answers are too different. Plus, some amount of duplication on the site is fine.

@HodofHod: Upon reflection, I think you're right for many reasons. • College students can generally turn to their local food-services department and maybe also Hillel. They often live in housing shared with non-Jews. • Non-students are in a different situation. Non-students might work for a company with a corporate cafeteria that will help them. But they also might not. Non-students also tend to have private apartments with kosher kitchens. And non-students are less likely to be able to go on the Grandma meal plan. • In summary, being in college may indeed change the situation a lot.

The wait sounds like it was very frustrating. Why did it take 40 minutes for them to heat up an airplane meal for you? At your school, could you phone the cafeteria ahead of time every day? Better yet, could you put in a standing order for the staff to heat up a kosher meal for you at the beginning of every cafeteria shift?

Thank you for this useful post, and thank you for the edits. One tip: When eating an airplane meal, if you add fruit, bread, toast, or a sandwich, you'll end up more full.

@MonicaCellio: This question is not for me: I've graduated already. It's for someone I know who's living in such a situation. I don't know what his budget is.

comment Is there a way to find proximate words?
A regular expression ("regexp") is sort of like a mini computer program whose purpose is to do fancy searches through a corpus of text. I don't know if one can do the search you want using regexps, but maybe one can. First, try to find a copy of Tanach where the typist didn't press Enter at the end of each 80-character line. I don't know if such a copy exists. Then, open it in a program which supports regexps, such as gVim or MS Word. Finally, look online for a regexp for what you want. stackoverflow.com can help.

Good question. But I didn't upvote it: what research have you done already? Have you even checked Wikipedia? Could you please edit the question and show us your work?
