Kids Kitchen

The Monticello Help Center, in partnership with Sodexo and the Monticello School District, will again be providing kid-friendly foods on a weekly basis to families with children ages 2-18  This distribution will occur each Monday at the Monticello High School.  

How does it work?       It’s as easy as 1-2-3!!!

1.        Mark your calendar for Mondays from June 11-August 13th.

2.       Go to the High School each Monday from June 11- August 13th.     

Hours of service:  Mondays  11:00 a.m.-noon   and Monday evenings 6:00-7:00 p.m.

3.        Sign logbook with your name and number of children age 2-18.  You will receive a box/bag of dry goods and a box/bag of fresh/frozen goods and milk for each child. There will also be fresh produce and bakery goods for you to choose. 

If you are unable to attend during our hours of service, you may ask a friend/relative/neighbor to pick up  food for your children.   We want to be sure no child is hungry this summer!  High school students may pick up food for themselves and siblings.

It is important to note that you are not alone.  There are many children and families within the Monticello School district that may need a little extra help during the summer months to feed those hungry kids!  We want to make sure that every child in our district gets enough to eat so that they can be happy, healthy, and achieve to their full potential.
