    There is only a single on campus place to eat that closes after two. There is no meal plan so you have to pay for the food yourself. However there are a lot of restaurants close by.

    The school is filled with vending machines that offer poor choices of snacks. In the gym, the vending machine is full of candy, soda, and high sodium carbohydrates. The cafeteria will remind you of elementary school food, not many choices. Pricing is average for a hot meal, about 6 dollars for a small pizza or microwaved burger.

    The people who work in the Hub are super nice. I like talking to all of them. They make me want to come back and get food everyday.

    The food in the cafeteria at YVCC is great. They have a ton of different foods to select from that can fit any kind of diet. There are also multiple restaurants surrounding the YVCC campus, such as taco bell and Mcdonalds. They have a large amount of space for people to hang out and eat.
