    The cafeteria has fresh made food daily. There is a student store that has a variety of different snacks you can get. There has also been a food truck on campus everyday, which makes it easy to grab something quick while you have a break between classes.

    Not many good food options on campus. The school has a convenience store and sparse cafeteria, but there is a serious lack of good and healthy food. In 2016, a food truck and Chinese vendor started selling on campus. Still not great food, and very few options for vegetarian or vegan students. Many people go off-campus to eat in the surrounding neighborhood.

    The food options in the food court have improved a lot this year, with a new Chinese vendor and a food truck there are actually some great options.

    TCC is located in between University Place and Tacoma. Within those areas there are some decent places. If you want really good food then downtown Tacoma definitely has a lot to offer.
