    We have a little cafeteria in the Student Center where they offer anything from pre-packaged items to freshly made sandwiches. It can be a little expensive at times, but there a lot of other food options near campus. We also have a deal with nearby fast-food restaurants like Taco Bell and Chick-fil-la where they supply their respective food for a day.

    Catawba Valley Community College is located on US Highway 70. Within a few miles from the school there is every dining location you can think of. Applebees, Olive Garden, Buffalo Wild Wings, East Coast Wings, and countless others. But if you're in a hurry to get to your next class there is plenty of delicious food in the Student Center with staff always friendly and ready to help.

    That's the part, the food is simple. Some students eat in campus, but most of us eat outside of campus in our free time or bring food from home. The eating place, which is in the student center, is well accommodated and allows you to eat your food comfortable while you relax with your friends.
