Farmers to Families Food Boxes to be Distributed in June

Arroyo, El Monte and Mountain View high schools will distribute USDA Farmers to Families Food Boxes during the month of June.

Each week, families will receive two bags of cheese and two bags of pre-cooked pork products. Bags will be distributed one day a week (one box per family) until supplies run out.

They will be distributed along with summer free breakfast and lunch grab-and-go meals, which are available 10 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Fridays at the following locations:

  • El Monte High School, 3048 Tyler Ave., El Monte, 91731
  • Arroyo High School, 4921 Cedar Ave., El Monte, 91732
  • Mountain View High School, 2900 Parkway, El Monte, 91732

Free Summer Meal Distribution for El Monte, Rosemead and South El Monte Communities

Summer grab-and-go meals will be available to community members 18 years of age and younger. Meals will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis based on availability.

No ID is required for students. It is recommended that children be present when parents are picking up meals. For parents who cannot bring their children to pick up meals, the District may limit the number of meals and school staff may seek verification of student enrollment to avoid duplicate meals. Please wear facial coverings.
