Food for Thought

Help fuel your education and grab a free meal while on campus as a part of Food for Thought — a 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.
