Dining halls are located on the first floor of the Z. A. Barron Student Union Building. The college outsources food services through Valley Foods Incorporated. To gain admittance, a residence hall student must present his/her student ID in order to eat any meal; and there are no exceptions to this rule. The college makes every effort to provide nutritious items on a daily basis in the college's dining hall. It is a requirement for all residence hall occupants to participate in dining hall services. The room and board fees that students are assessed cover the meal plan. Except on occasions when bag or box lunches are prepared, food is not to be taken from the dining area. Athletes are required to purchase a seven (7) meal plan. Non-athletes can purchase either a five (5) day or (7) day meal plan. Hours for the college dining hall are as follows:
Breakfast….. Monday-Friday….. 7:00-7:30 a.m.
Lunch………. Monday-Friday…. 11:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m.
Dinner……… Monday-Friday….. 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Weekends…. Brunch: 10a.m.-11:00 a.m. Dinner: 3:00p.m.-3:45
The college also has a college grill, in which fast foods are served at the expense of the student, and such expense is independent of the college meal plan. The hours of operation for the college grill are:
Monday-Friday………………7:30 a.m. to 2:00p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday……. 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
A signed request by the residence hall director is required for permission to take the food to a student who is confined to the residence hall for a valid reason. Students are expected to observe standards of good conduct and good citizenship while in the dining area. Violation of the Code of Conduct may result in one of the following sanctions: fine, disciplinary warning, probation, dismissal from dining services for the year, suspension, or expulsion. Appropriate dress is essential for both the dining hall and the grill. Pajamas, house shoes, tank tops, caps, head scarves, head rollers, do-rags, etc. are not acceptable apparel. Coahoma Community College reserves the right to refuse food services to anyone based on the grounds of inappropriate dress and/or inappropriate actions displayed verbally or physically. Such acts are considered student infractions and the student judicial process will be invoked, to decide whether probation, suspension, or dismissal of meal services is necessary. Meal plan monies are non refundable based on the aforementioned sanctions.
