Ever since the cafeteria practically disappeared from the Gannon Building following the COVID-19 pandemic, LCC students have been hard-pressed in finding food between classes.
With the addition of multiple Grab-n-Go stores in buildings including the Gannon Building, TLC and west campus, it has been easier than ever to grab a bite.
“The kiosk here at the Gannon Building is by far the most popular, because the majority of students park at the Gannon ramp and pass through here,” said Cynthia Rooker, director of Auxiliary Services for LCC.
These Grab-n-Go stores are becoming ever more popular, and come at no cost to LCC. Students can be seen at all times of the day purchasing a variety of tasty items.
Open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., these locations offer a variety of drinks, meals, snacks and treats.
A new Grab-n-Go Café has been added to the garden level of the Health and Human Services building, a market filled with fresh foods, snack, drinks and coffee.
“The students and staff wanted healthier food options,” Rooker said.
Don’t worry, students can still stick with the classic bag of chips and a bottle of pop, or even get a frozen meal, but the addition of delicious wraps, soups and protein-rich foods, offer much more variety.
Speaking of frozen meals, microwaves may be slightly hard to come by, besides the two in Gannon, but within a couple of weeks, more microwave ovens will be added to campus.
So take advantage of quick and easy options available at the Grab-n-Go stores around campus.
