    They have prepackaged and freshly made food in the cafeteria. Vending machines are all over campus. There are fast food, Mexican, Asian, and hamburger restaurants nearby as well as frozen yogurt and ice cream right down the road. With all these options, you can't get bored!

    WPCC has a cafeteria and the food is pretty good. But it is nothing compared to the variety of food you would find at a university.

    I decided to rate food as 4 out of 5 because as delicious as the cafeteria food is, the price is personally a bit of a deal-breaker for me. The prices are not extreme but they are also not the same as if you bought the meal from a store. Not only that, the cafeteria provides a different menu each day so it does not become cloying! Morganton, the town Western Piedmont is situated in, holds a variety of eating facilities from the ever-popular Grind Cafe, to Italian, Greek, and family restaurants, not to mention the typical students savior, fast food restaurants.

    The food in the cafeteria at WPCC isn't so bad. There's a salad bar, burgers, pizzas, and etc. Also, the price is decent.
