You will be responsible for supplying your own meals while at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. There are a handful of options for you to choose from when thinking about eating while at the Laboratory:
Fresh Seasons Café serves a wide assortment of breakfast and lunch options at the main cafeteria and smaller canteens at the High Flux Isotope Reactor and at the Spallation Neutron Store. A limited evening food service (6 p.m. to 9 p.m.) is also available.
The Hot Bagel Company operates coffee and bagel kiosks during breakfast and lunch in three buildings across campus.
There are vending machines located across campus.
You are also welcome to bring your own lunch. There are no restaurants near the Laboratory, so it is not very convenient to eat out for lunch.
