Effective Friday, May 6, 2011, the current food service provider will cease service to Thomas Nelson Community College.  A student committee formed last year by the Office of Student Affairs requested that the College seek to bring a national branded (name brand) food service provider.  Through a formal bid process by the Purchasing Department, a contract has been awarded to Subway, Inc.  They will provide a full menu of breakfast selections, sandwiches, soups, chili, and salads at the Hampton campus, and a modified menu at the Williamsburg campus.

Renovations to the kitchen and serving areas will commence shortly.  The cafeteria is expected to be fully operational in early August 2011. In the meantime, our current vending machine provider will install additional machines with enhanced food options. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we see this opportunity as a way to respond to requests and provide healthy choices for the entire campus community.
