For many, this year has been marked by isolation and loneliness as people across the globe social distanced to try to stamp out coronavirus. The holidays are a time for togetherness, a time to be thankful and celebrate the relationships we have in our lives. After a lonely year, that sounds like just what we need. But with COVID-19 cases surging in the U.S., how can we celebrate safely? And is it safe to gather at all? MPR News host Angela Davis is joined by two experts to talk about dos and don’ts of holiday gatherings during the pandemic, safer ways to celebrate and how to set boundaries with family members. Guests: Megan Freeman is a pediatric infectious diseases fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Rachel Miller is a deputy editor at VICE and the author of “The Art of Showing Up: How to Be There for Yourself and Your People.”
The coronavirus pandemic has exposed cracks in many societal structures — including housing and food banks. Families that have never relied on food assistance before are reaching out to get aid. And for those with housing insecurity, the pandemic has made things worse while also increasing the number of people struggling to pay rent. Nonprofits have been combatting the effects of the pandemic since March, and we’re checking in to see how things are going. As temperatures drop, how are food banks and shelters preparing for what comes next? Guests: Allison O’Toole is CEO of Second Harvest Heartland, which is Minnesota’s largest food bank, serving more than 500,000 people each year.  Cathy ten Broeke is the state’s director to prevent and end homelessness and the executive director of the Minnesota Interagency Council on Homelessness.
