Monroe Correctional Complex (MCC) is one large complex consisting of four separate facilities located between Everett and Wenatchee. It houses 2,400 maximum, close, medium and minimum custody male inmates. Class II operations are as follows:
CI Food Service vertically integrates with CI's food factory production by serving CI produced foods accompanied by non-CI produced products. The centralization of purchasing and use of a statewide standard 4-week cycle menu has stabilized facility food service budgets. The 4-week cycle menu provides for nationally recommended allowances for basic nutrition, which are reviewed annually. In addition to serving daily meals, CI Food Service also utilizes idle time to repackage powdered milk, resulting in annual savings and additional training opportunities. While working for CI Food Service, inmate workers receive a full scope of food service skills and have the ability to earn ServSafe® food manager certification, a nationally recognized food safety certification. CI Food Service operates two shifts, seven days per week and employs 32 staff overseeing 265 inmate workers.
