    CCP's food is actually really yummy! I've had lots of experience with the cafeteria and I'd give the food and friendliness of the staff two thumbs up!

    The food at Community College of Philadelphia is of the lowest quality, but at an extremely high price which is totally disrespectful to student who are most of the time low-income students. The greed of top deans and executives are what create chills in my back when I enter this college. The customer service that I receive from working-study students is of the most rudest quality with ghetto tongues and rapid attitudes as if I created the anger that the work study student omits. The dining areas are mediocre with the same old hard plastic seats that are not comfortable for a student who just paid $7.00 for a tuna sandwich, 2.25 for a soda, and 1.25 for an air bag with barely enough chips.

    The college's cafeteria has a good selection of food, prepared right in front of you, as well as vending machines in the buildings. There are plenty of food trucks in the area, including on campus, as well as a host of fast food restaurants and dining restaurants; there are also convenience stores (7-Eleven, Wawa, etc.) and a whole foods supermarket within blocks of the campus.
