Guam - The Department of Education's food services contract with Kings Restaurant is getting ready to expire, and as a result a request for proposal has been issued. So far, according to DOE deputy superintendent Taling Taitano, four bidders have responded.

And as DOE works on the contract they're also working to secure more funding for the Food and Nutrition Program. "We are partnering with Senator [Ben] Pangelinan's office and they are actually doing the study of the cost of the program to see if we can put together a packet to USDA to increase the subsidy to help us offset the expenses going to this program," Taitano said.

She added the contract is worth about $8 million and is currently being held by Kings.
