For the past week, volunteers at 12 of Guam’s public schools have given thousands of meals to feed the island’s children.

And the demand has only gotten higher, with one school even running out of meals to give.

Guam Department of Education Spokesperson Isa Baza said that there was a long line of cars waiting outside of JFK High School this morning.

One parent who waited in line told PNC that they were told by a school official that they had run out of meals to give just before 11 am, which is when the distribution starts.

Baza confirmed that the school did finish giving away meals early and that every day, a total of 24,000 breakfast and lunch meals are handed out every day.

That’s three times as many meals compared to when the Grab and Go program first started back on March 23.
