The Guam Department of Education (GDOE), State Agency for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Nutrition Service (FNS), continues the distribution of food commodities through each mayor at the village level. Commodities will be distributed via drive-through or door-to-door delivery to provide easier access to food commodities for residents while also minimizing traffic-related issues.

Recipients will receive one bag of TEFAP food commodities per household that may include elbow macaroni, long-grain rice, green split peas, yellow split peas, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, canned pears, mixed fruit, canned pork, canned beef, canned chicken, instant milk, frozen orange juice, banana chips, dried mangos, and additional commodities as they arrive.  Food Commodities will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Commodity distribution in each village will be available to village constituents only and residents should call their respective mayor’s office for more information.

A total of 1,310 bags of food commodities will be distributed to the Mayor’s Offices this coming week. Participants are reminded to wear a mask, maintain physical distancing, and follow all traffic directions and signage.
