They also mention that the number of families experiencing an absence of fundamental necessities and food uncertainty has ascended by half, in the course of these few months. The circumstance led the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program, which is interfacing nearby ranchers and farmers to food banks and different non-profits who may require those provisions.

Consumers of Hawaii turn toward produce grown locally
There has been a significant increase in the buying of produce grown locally, all due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, an increase in the demand for produce pickup as well as delivery services is also witnessed.
Throughout the state, the farmers are the most hurt because of the shutting down of the hotels and the restaurants. However, a few operations have witnessed a huge increase in direct sales to consumers. This demand is so high that services can’t keep up.
Mainz along with her mother run 808 Organics, a 4-year-old company where locally grown fruits, vegetables and eggs are packed in produce boxes and then made available to be delivered or picked up as per the need. According to her, the order has now grown to two to five times because of the new coronavirus that hit Hawaii recently.
She also says that she does personal shopping for customers. Every week, it is her routine to pick up hundreds of pounds of produce from the which is grown on neighbour islands.
Currently, the waiting list is as high as 100 people. As of now, only one of her pickup locations —remains open - at Coffee Talk in Kaimuki.
The support will wane, she says, after the re-opening of the economy. However, she thinks that people will still seek out locally sourced produce.

All the things you should know about Coronavirus on Sunday, May 17
As most of the cases had recovered and the virus mostly contained, China had started reopening. Life is returning to normal, and lockdowns are being loosened, and many schools and factories have opened.
Dr. Zhong Nanshan, one of the top medical advisers in the country, says that they fear a second wave of COVID-19 because it is not determined whether people develop immunity for the virus after contracting it.
One more reason for the worry, as recently eight sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt had been tested positive for the virus second time.
Zhong also told that Wuhan suppressed the first reports and the magnitude of the initial outbreak. "At the very beginning, they kept silent, and then I said probably we have (a larger) number of people being infected," he said.
New clusters of cases had emerged in China. More than 8,000 people were quarantined in Shulan on Friday.
Some cases for the second wave had also been observed from South Korea. The number of confirmed cases related to Seoul's nightclub cluster had reached 168.
Many leaders fear the second wave as they reopen the country for their economies. Still, people are getting impatient, and many protests were seen this weekend in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Hawaii struggling with quarantine enforcement to be followed by Travellers or tourists
A 23-year old New York boy, Tarique Peters, was arrested after heading to Hawaii when he did not follow the local quarantine regulations. This man posted his beach pictures on Instagram at a time when he is supposed to stay in isolation to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Hawaii governor’s office made a statement that the man was taken into custody as he defied the mandatory 14-day quarantine rule of Hawaii and also for “unsworn falsification to authority”.
According to reports, the state has a total of 638 cases, and 17 have died. Also, few tourists have been arrested for violation of the quarantine rules.
As per the news discharge from the Hawaii Covid-19 Joint Information Center, Peters, 23-year old from Bronx borough of New York City, arrived in Honolulu. The release also informed that reportedly, he left the suite room on the day he arrived, and used public transport to travel to various places. The citizens who saw his Instagram posts- sunbathing, on the beach with the surfboard, strolling at night around Waikiki
During the isolation period, tourists or travellers are barred from leaving the hotel room or residence; they do not get any housekeeping facilities and food to be delivered needs to be arranged.
Authorities are striving to upgrade the enforcement quarantine as there are still various people entering the state. Hawaii Tourism Authority informed that recently, 252 visitors and 318 residents stepped in Hawaii. The state attorney General Clare also appreciated the support of the local people in reporting to the right authorities about people who are violating the emergency rules on social media.
Tattoo business to remain closed in the next phase of reopening said Mayor
Many businesses are opening in this new phase of reopening, but one business still has to wait and continue its struggle. The niche body art industry and the artists who work in it have only the City and County of Honolulu's new Small Business Relief and Recovery Fund as a lifeline.
Anthony and Carey Hunter are in the tattoo business for more than 20 years and work for both local and tourist clients at Electric Paradise and Victorian Tattoo in Waikiki, West Coast Ink in Kapolei and Hula Girl Tattoo on Maui.
Like other businesses, they also pay taxes and need to have close contact with customers, but they all wonder why they had not received any help from the government.
Hunters work with dozens of independent artists, so have a plan to apply for the City of Honolulu's grant program, which gives needy businesses $10,000 for different expenses.
During the conference this week, by Mayor Calwell, the tattoo parlor would not be a part of the next reopening phase.
Mayor Caldwell said that the tattoo parlor leaves the customers at high risk and did not provide any timeline for them nut state lieutenant governor Josh Green said that beauty salon and spas might get reopened by the end of May.

Cuerpos de seguridad abaten a seis hombres en 90 minutos - La Prensa de Lara
Nueva noticia sobre: Cuerpos de seguridad abaten a seis hombres en 90 minutos
José D. Sequera | LA PRENSA de Lara - El inicio de la semana en Barquisimeto fue de sangre después que ayer y en sólo 90 minutos, seis hombres murieran en distintos tiroteos contra funcionarios de las FAES y de la BRI, cuerpos de seguridad pertenecientes a la Policía Nacional Bolivariana (PNB), pues eran buscados para ponerles los ganchos.Las FAES fueron las que iniciaron las operaciones policiales. Eran las 5:30 de la mañana cuando los funcionarios, supuestamente, intercambiaron disparos contra Yender Javier Arriechi Mujica (22) alias "Virolo" en Santos Luzardo, líder de una banda delictiva que se dedicaba al robo y hurto. "Virolo" hizo caso omiso a las órdenes de los policías, por lo que decidió accionar su arma, generando el tiroteo, recibiendo un balazo fulminante en el pecho. Este hombre tenía tres entradas policiales, dos de ellas del año pasado por drogas y robo genérico, y otra del 2014 por robo de gandolas. Media hora después, se registraron dos plomazones con otros dos abatidos. Una de ellas fue en una casa de la carrera 2 del barrio El Carmen, en el que resultó abatido Jean Carlos GonzálezFréitez (39), alias "Jeans", quien tenía entradas por homicidio, robo, hurto y distribución de drogas entre 1999 y 2010. Según contaron vecinos de la zona, una ráfaga de tiros los despertó en el amanecer, pero no sabían qué estaba sucediendo. "Eran las 6:00 de la mañana cuando escuché los tiros, me asomé y vi que estaban los funcionarios de las FAES saliendo en una camioneta llevándose al muchacho muerto", dijo uno de los vecinos de "Jeans". Mientras que en el segundo tiroteo de las 6:00 de la mañana, murió Moisés Antonio Herrera Barreto. Herrera, según una fuente policial, pertenecía a la banda del "Misaelito", y también tenía un registro por robo de vehículo en el 2015. Supuestamente, se enfrentó con un revólver a los funcionarios en una casa, ubicada en el barrio El Turbio. A las 6:30 de la mañana y en una casa frente al estadio La Tomatera en el sector Tierra Negra se registró la cuarta plomazón. Allí, José Castillo (56), alias "Guarapo de Uva", hizo frente a las FAES con balazos, pero cayó muerto con un balazo en el pecho. Este delincuente tenía nueve entradas policiales entre 1984 y 2016 por hurto, lesiones personales, robo, posesión y tráfico de drogas, además de violencia física. Los últimos dos abatidos se registraron a las 7:00 de la mañana. Keiner Hibrahin TorresMonge, murió en un tiroteo con las FAES en La Carucieña tras ignorar la voz de alto que le dieron, pues él, supuestamente, pertenecía a una banda delictiva dedicada al hurto. Al mismo tiempo en la avenida 13 con calle 4 del sector Valle Lindo 2, de El Cují, funcionarios de la Brigada de Respuesta Inmediata (BRI) abatieron a Vilmer Reinoso Escobar (32), quien tenía dos entradas por droga y resistencia a la autoridad en 2009 y 2018. "A su familia la sacaron de la casa" Familiares de Jean Carlos González Fréitez (39), uno de los fallecidos en los 6 tiroteos que hubo ayer en Barquisimeto, específicamente en El Carmen, afirmaron en la morgue del hospital que los funcionarios llegaron a su casa para llevarse a toda su familia. "A su esposa y a sus cinco hijos se los llevaron porque les dijeron que tenían que firmar unos papeles, y dejaron a Jean Carlos con ellos en la casa. Después de ahí, no sabemos que pasó", comentó un familiar. Tanto sus familiares como vecinos contaron que él había estado preso en Cepella, Portuguesa, por hurto, hasta noviembre de 2019, y después de su liberación se había metido a comerciante. "Él estaba vendiendo torticas de arroz con su esposa en Barrio Unión", dijo una vecina. Síguenos en nuestras redes sociales como @laprensalara. Estamos en Twitter, Facebook, Instagram y Youtube.
