A New Victory Garden Movement Afoot

“In some ways we’ve been preparing for this all our lives as organizers and as small-scale farmers. As we see the systems we’ve come to rely on show their cracks, we are called to rise to the moment,” says Leah Penniman in this piece on the emergence of corona “victory gardens”. Sign up to be part of the Cooperative Gardens Commission to exchange knowledge and start your own garden!

“The growing global pandemic is quickly making clear how fragile and dysfunctional our food system is behind the scenes, and how dangerous this is for all of us… our country is being confronted with a crucial opportunity to change the nature of this system once and for all, to make certain that our collective wellbeing does not depend on the systematic exploitation of hard-working and economically disenfranchised populations.” – Sarah Reinhardt, Union of Concerned Scientists in Pandemic Exposes Plight of Food Workers Who Have Long Fought for Justice

Spreadsheet of Spreadsheets!

There’s a lot of information circulating right now, so we’ve compiled a few key sources that have come our way into this compilation spreadsheet that we hope will make it easier for you to make sense of it all. You’ll see various ListServs you can get tapped into and then COVID-19 resources relevant to food systems leaders compiled from across the country, and organized by category. This is an open and working document, we hope you find it helpful.

www.ma-lgbtq.org -This is the Commission’s interactive map of local resources throughout Massachusetts. Many local LGBTQ youth organizations – for example, BAGLY, Boston GLASS, Framingham GLASS, and Out MetroWest, to name a few – have already shared ways in which they will stay connected to clients virtually throughout this pandemic. Contacting these organizations directly using the information found in our resource map is the best way to stay up-to-date on virtual offerings they have during this time.

www.glbtnearme.org – Find the largest collection of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender resources on the web. Find the closest social and support resources, the closest community centers, the closest youth groups, and much more! All you have to do is type in your zip code, the distance you are willing to travel, and choose from 26 categories of information including bisexual, transgender, crisis, recovery, youth, etc.

www.glbthotline.org – The LGBT National Help Center provides vital peer-support, community connections, and resource information to people with questions regarding sexual orientation or gender identity. Utilizing LGBT volunteers, they operate three national hotlines, LGBT National Hotline, LGBT National Youth Talkline, and LGBT National Senior Hotline. They also offer private volunteer one-to-one online chat, that helps both youth and adults with coming-out issues, safer-sex information, school bullying, family concerns, relationship problems and a lot more. They run weekly moderated chat rooms for LGBT youth and teens to find support and community.

Health Insurance

Insurance. The Massachusetts Health Connector has designated a temporary special enrollment period beginning on March 11, 2020, and ending on April 25, 2020, for currently uninsured Massachusetts residents. More information may be found here. If you work with clients/patients who are currently uninsured, please consider this opportunity to assist them to enroll in health insurance coverage for which they are eligible. The BRIDGE Program at CRI can assist in health insurance enrollment. They can be reached at (617) 502-1747 or www.crine.org/BRIDGE

MassHealth has extended some benefits and shares info for members here

Free/Affordable Health Care

Urgent Care. Beth Israel Deaconness Hospital is providing free remote urgent care to anyone, regardless of insurance, for any issue that is not an emergency – BIDMC

OnDemand Virtual Urgent Care

Cambridge Healthcare for the Homeless

Cambridge Multi-Service Center

Health Information

Partners Healthcare has a COVID hotline that is staffed by nurses from 8am-8pm. The number is (617) 724-7000.

 

Most of the nurses are English-speaking. The greeting is also admittedly in English. However, if the caller waits until the nurse (vs. the recording) comes on the line, all they need to do is say, “I speak Spanish”, “I speak Russian”, “I speak Arabic.” The nurse will put them on hold and immediately conference in an interpreter. The nurses can answer any and all COVID-specific questions.

 

One significant limitation – for folks who are Deaf/HoH or Deaf/Blind, the hotline is currently set up in such a way that the caller needs to already have an ASL interpreter on their end. For example, there is no TTY or other interface setup that might accommodate DeafTalk (with all its limitations). This is strictly a phone line at present. Partners is working to remedy this.

 

There are no questions about insurance or documentation. This hotline is free.
