During Monterey County's shelter-in-place order, children 18 and younger can access food through a Monterey County school site - no questions asked. Here is a map of all the food distribution sites in Monterey County.
In the Monterey Peninsula Unifed School District, beginning March 30, 2020, the district will offer grab and go meals at 16 school sites, 10am-12pm, for students 18 and younger. The children do not need to be present - a parent or guardian can pick up the meals to take home to their kids.
Each meal will include lunch for the day and breakfast for the next day. Families can pick up meals at any location. Families will be asked to drive up, roll down their window and grab the meal. Families who need to walk up will be asked to observe social distancing protocols and line up at least 6 feet apart from others. Staff will hand the bagged meal from the top of the bag and families will be asked to grab the bag from the bottom of the bag to receive the meal.
