Food and hospitality programs have been offered on campus since the days of Williamsport Area Community College, a Penn College forerunner. Prior to the construction of Le Jeune Chef next to the Hager Lifelong Education Center, instructional kitchens were located in the Klump Academic Center and meals were served in adjacent classrooms.

Since 1984, Le Jeune Chef has undergone several changes in appearance, from the recoloring of the original blue roof of the restaurant entrance outside...

... to the change in wall and window coverings, art, dining ware, and staff attire inside.
