The University of Guam is orchestrating nearly 300 meal deliveries per day to health care workers and volunteers at Department of Public Health and Social Services sites operating in response to COVID-19. Nearly 4,300 meals have been delivered as of April 7.

“We initially provided meals to the nurses who were handling the medical hotline, but as word got out, we went from providing 25 meals to 225 meals – from the port to the airport and from Inarajan to the Northern Public Health Center,” said Carlos Taitano, director of the Global Learning & Engagement office at the university.
