Dining at MCC

MCC’s food service program includes cafeterias at all four of our main campuses, as well as vending machines throughout most of the campus facilities.

The cafeterias are open Monday-Thursday in the fall and spring semesters. Campus cafés are not usually open during the summer session.

Free breakfast program ENDS OCT. 6, 2022

Earlier this year, Metropolitan Community College implemented a free breakfast program for students by offering a daily $6 breakfast credit at MCC’s Blue River, Longview, Maple Woods and Penn Valley campuses. Unfortunately, the grant funding for the student breakfast promotion will end after Thursday, Oct. 6. (Free breakfast is only Mon.-Thurs., and free breakfast will not be offered beyond this week.)
