Community comes together amid Covid-19 crisis

The University of Guam is orchestrating more than 200 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.

“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.

The meals are being donated by the following restaurants, wholesalers, organizations, and individuals. Bulk food is then prepared by restaurant and catering business Nayon Express and delivered by UOG staff.

  • Nayon Express, University of Guam Residence Halls, Guam Community College, The Salvation Army, Rambie’s, McDonald's of Guam, Pacific Star Resort and Spa, International Distributors Inc., Triple J Five Star Wholesale Foods Inc., Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, Chef’s Inasal BBQ House, Sidelines, GTA, Micronesian Brokers Inc., Annamma Varghese, V.
