Welcome to Valencia College. We are so glad that you are here.
Check out our new and exciting food options available on campus this term. From free food days and pop-up kitchens to smart markets and food trucks, you’ll have a variety of offerings to choose from.
What’s on the menu?
Help fuel your education and grab a free meal while on campus as a part of Food for Thought — a new, free lunch pilot program. Free meals will be provided one day per week on East, Osceola and West Campuses from 11 a.m. until the food runs out or 2:30 p.m., whichever comes first. Domino's, 4 Rivers Smokehouse and Tijuana Flats will rotate among the campuses on Food for Thought days. Pre-selected menu items, including a vegetarian item, will be provided to students and employees on a first-come, first-served basis.
