The dining hall of Aljamea is known as al-Mawāʾid. Students, professors, instructors and all administrative staff dine in the Mawāʾid. In addition, faculty households are provided daily with lunch and dinner that serve three to four people. Every day approximately three thousand individuals are served, totalling some 2.2 million meals per year. Stress upon hygiene and balanced diet is abundant throughout Fatimi texts, which is why menus are prepared after extensive consultation with nutritionists and dieticians. Hygiene is given utmost attention to ensure that al-Mawāʾid staff and diners remain in the best of health.
