Food and clothing for students, no questions asked

Monty's (FREE) Food Market and Clothing Closet seeks to alleviate student challenges by gathering donations in response to the needs of our students. We are committed to fulfill the needs of MVC lions through food distribution, clothing closet and support services.

The Food Market and Clothing Closet was founded by the Human Services program and is managed by MVC's Basic Needs team.

A student shouldn't have to choose between eating well and learning well.”

How We Help

Monty's Food Market assists any currently enrolled MVC student who may be experiencing hardship or food insecurity. Students may receive one bag of food per week and must fill out an intake form (for data purposes only) to be eligible for this service. The Clothing Closet, meanwhile, provides students with the proper and professional clothing attire needed for an interview, career fair and first jobs.

Shelf-stable, nutrient-dense food, frozen meats and dairy products are preferred for Monty's Food Market. The Clothing Closet accepts gently used professional, workplace-appropriate attire that is ready to wear. Clothing donations must be in good condition, laundered or dry-cleaned prior to donation.
