Feeding dogs together in groups is just asking for this sort of situation.

The only way to make it work is to keep several feet of space between them, and make each dog wait at it's bowl until all the dogs are done eating. Guarding food from other dogs is a natural behavior, and a dog walking around nearby, even if it's not showing interest in another's food, can easily provoke a guarding reaction.

Personally, I would simply eliminate the potential for conflict by feeding them separately. Either in crates, or in separate areas of the house.
