FIT has one cafeteria that offers typical college food (such as pizza, deli sandwiches, fast food-type meals, and a hot bar), which can potentially lead to a possible Freshman 15 if students are not careful. There are also other options, such as sushi, soup and salad bars, and several pre-packaged foods. Students have a choice between the meals-per-week plans (9, 14, and 19) and the Freedom plan. The Freedom plan serves as a declining balance, allowing the student to pick what he or she wants without having to follow the meal guidelines. Each meal plan includes an additional declining balance fund.
Some students have complained about the hours of the cafeteria; they are not as accommodating as students would like them to be. There are several cheap options outside of the cafeteria that students tend to flock to if necessary.
