The Guam Police Department asks motorists in line to receive food commodities, or those availing to other forms of COVID-19 public assistance offered to the community, to refrain from blocking public easements, private roadways, or entrances to private businesses.

The Guam Department of Education (GDOE), State Agency for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) under the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Nutrition Service, continues food commodities distribution through each mayor at the village level.

Recipients will receive TEFAP food commodities per household that may include canned chicken, chicken in a pouch, spaghetti sauce, mixed fruits, peaches, plums, yellow split peas, pistachios, hazelnuts, circle oat cereal, crispy hexagon cereal, and bottled cranapple juice.

Distribution in each village will be available to village constituents only. Commodities are also being provided in bulk to the community organizations to distribute directly to their clients/families/households. Participants must wear a mask, maintain distance, and follow all traffic directions and signage.
