Freed-Hardeman has two major dining facilities. Wallace-Gano is the main cafeteria, and Lion's Pride (located on the ground floor of Wallace-Gano) is more of a fast food joint. Gano has been recently renovated, and the aesthetics are very pleasing; the lighting, tiles, and seats are completely brand-new. There are many more food options, including a '50s diner section where burgers are cooked, a salad bar, a pizza bar, a buffet-style line, and an international cuisine grill where many different types of food are prepared. Gano is also adding more vegetarian options to its menu, serving vegetarian burgers and other healthier choices. While the food is usually pretty good, the workers are sometimes rude and short with students, and there is not much day-to-day food variety.
Lion's Pride is where students go when they are looking for a quick meal. FHU recently added Pizza Hut to this establishment, with features like personal pan pizzas, breadsticks, cinnamon sticks, chocolate dunkers, and wings. There is also a burger/chicken restaurant that serves sandwiches, salads, and chicken strips. In addition to Wallace-Gano and Lion's Pride, KC's Coffeehouse provides supplementary meals, where students don't have to spend their own money and can use their meal plans or Lion Bucks (a reloadable account only usable at Lion's Pride or KC's). Students can buy fruit, salads, soups, sandwiches, coffees, teas, or parfaits—among many other different types of food.
