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.

Village distribution will be conducted via drive-through or door-to-door delivery. Recipients will receive one bag of TEFAP food commodities per household that may include elbow macaroni, split peas, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, canned pears, mixed fruit, canned beef, canned pork or canned chicken, instant milk, kidney beans, oat circle cereal, banana chips, and only village drive-through distributions will receive frozen orange juice.

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. Participants are reminded to wear a mask, maintain physical distancing, and follow all traffic directions and signage.
