It’s About Food. It’s About People.


Comprised of three on-campus dining locations and our renowned catering service, Central College Dining Services is proud to prepare delicious food for students, staff and faculty, as well as a host of companies, institutions and private parties.


An emphasis on quality ingredients, bold flavors and diverse cuisines are why we’re known across Iowa, while an unwavering commitment to convenience and providing helpful, courteous service is often what our diners and customers appreciate most.


Why the need for three on-campus dining locations? Because each venue features a unique ambiance and offers a selection of food and beverages entirely its own. The Central Market is the center of the Central College Dining Services universe, featuring 12 stations preparing a vast assortment of foods. Fred’s is where to enjoy fun events and short-order food. And the Global Café Geisler is a cozy coffee shop where you can relax over a cup of fresh java.


Our catering service provides scrumptious catering solutions for corporate events and private parties all across Iowa. With an extensive menu and an experienced, dedicated staff, we make the food that will make your event.
