Food Service

In an effort to minimize exposure for our staff and community, we are working on a plan to lessen the number of days in which we distribute meals. Instead of distributing daily, we will be moving to distributing multiple days’ worth of meals on a few days. Please see below for updated changes:
This week: Monday – Friday 3/30 – 4/3
Distribution remains normal; we are distributing meals daily at the 3 locations from 11:30a – 12:15p. *Bag supplies are low nationwide, so please bring your own bags if you have them or clear out space in your trunk for us to place inside.
Spring Break Meal Distribution Dates: Monday 4/6 & Wednesday 4/8
During Spring Break, we will still offer meal pick-up at the Robert Down Elementary, Pacific Grove High School, and Arkwright Court from 11:30a – 12:15p. On Monday, we will distribute Monday & Tuesday meals and on Wednesday, we will distribute Wednesday – Friday meals. *Bag supplies are low nationwide, so please bring your own bags if you have them or clear out space in your trunk for us to place inside.
Returning from Break: Week of 4/6 through end of shelter-in-place
Upon returning from Break, we will distribute meals Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday ONLY. On Wednesday, we will distribute enough meals to cover Wednesday through Friday. We will be at Robert Down Elementary, Pacific Grove High School, and Arkwright Ct. from 11:30a -12:15p. *Bag supplies are low nationwide, so please bring your own bags if you have them or clear out space in your trunk for us to place inside.
As a reminder, please only go to ONE location per day. Meals are for children aged 18 and under.

***Coronavirus/COVID-19***

As expected by state and local public health officials, more cases of Novel Coronavirus (or COVID-19) emerge each day. The current focus is on lessening the impact of the disease by implementing best practices in hygiene and health. It is important for all of us to cover our coughs and sneezes, wash hands frequently, and stay home when sick. We are working closely with the Monterey County Health Department in mitigating health risks, communicating with our communities, and preparing for actions that may be necessary in the future.  The Monterey County Office of Education and Monterey Department of Health have directed all schools in Monterey County to close, and the county to shelter in place. More information.
