Food Services

Piedmont has chosen Pioneer College Catering, for the food service in an effort to provide three, hot, healthy meals for our students, faculty, staff and guests. Daily entree menu items are selected by the chef and additional choices are provided at each meal. Meal plans are included in a student's room and board fee each semester and loaded on the student ID. "Loading" the ID eliminates the need for cash or a credit card and provides peace of mind for parents knowing your child has healthy meals each day.
