Day 38: COVID-19 quarantine virtual crop HUNGER walk

Walk virtually.   Give online.   Change the world.

By Emma Palova

Lowell, MI – The annual Crop Hunger Walk set for May 3 will alleviate the impact of COVID-19 related hunger due to hurting economy.

Sadly, the impact of COVID-19 is far reaching; from young people still battling the complications of the coronavirus after weeks of breathing difficulties to people impacted by the hurting economy with hunger roaming at large.

And reports have it that the food supply chain may have been broken due to COVID-19 infections at the U.S. meat processing plants.

But, hope is the light on the horizon just before the sun comes up.

I see hope in the COVID-19 survivor, who made it out of the Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC alive after 53 days. I see hope in the Ebola drug, Remdesivir.

I see hope in this year’s virtual crop walk set for May 3. To register or find a Cropwalk in your community go to:

Lowell, MI- In the highlights posts, I will include curiosities and unbelievables as I come across them during the COVID-19 quarantine in Michigan.

Holland city mayor Nathan Bocks made a request on Tuesday, April 28. He hopes he will never have to make that request again. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 91st Tulip Time Festival was cancelled for the first time in history.

“Please do not come to Holland to see the tulips this year.”

The only sign of normalcy on this Wednesday morning was the Red Creek trash pick up truck. Thank you dear essential worker.

The annual Lowell Area Crop Hunger Walk on Sunday May 3 will be conducted virtually with the line: Walk virtually. Give online. Change the world. Go to: https://crophungerwalk.org to donate.

On the other hand, normal became our Wednesday zoo room meetings.

May e-Newsletter

As we head into May, I am working on May e-newsletters. I will be highlighting Mother’s Day, Mayday and May as the month of love, according to the Czech literature.

I love the month of May from its Mayday to Memorial Day, and everything in between. It’s the month of summer promises, blossoming lilacs and cherry trees.

Thank you health care heroes and essential workers for keeping us alive and fed.

Stay tuned for day by day coverage of the Coronavirus quarantine in Michigan.
