Cars were seen lining up today at Agana Heights to receive emergency food assistance.

Distributions were made at the office of the mayor with staffers physically handing out the food to cars as they approach. They also had sign-in sheets to confirm recipients were residents of Agana Heights.

A total of 1,480 bags of food commodities are to be distributed by the end of this week not just in Agana Heights, but to all villages.
