It was another busy day at the emergency food giveaway sites in Dededo and Barrigada, with hundreds of residents lining up early this morning to help feed their families.
The stations began setting up at 4 a.m. this morning, but participants were lining up as early as 3:30 a.m.
Thousands of bags and boxes filled with fresh produce, rice, and meat were given to families in need.
Dededo resident Edward Guerrero says that the program is a great resource for the community during these difficult times and that all it takes is a little waiting.
“It does good. They give fruit, canned goods, and some frozen meat. It’s been pretty good. No complaint. Just takes time to receive it and be patient,” Guerrero said.
The next distribution will take place Thursday, July 23, at the Tiyan Upper Baseball Field and the Dededo Farmer’s Market from 6 to 10 a.m. Up to three households per vehicle can pick up commodities.
