    Over the course of 12 days, DailyMail.com met a cross-section of Cubans to assess the factors behind the violent revolt on July 11 and 12.  The goal was to discover what the future might hold for a people trapped between a severe economic blockade and a repressive undemocratic regime. DailyMail.com entered the country posing as tourists and toured the capital's crumbling colonial streets, where soldiers and black berets stood guard on almost every corner. Shops had long lines of people outside in the 95 degree heat, desperate for medicine or food, but the shelves were usually all but bare. Yet while its people struggle to eat, the government prioritizes growing food for export and bringing in hard currency from the tourist market.   We spoke with Cubans from all walks of life, including a doctor, tour guide and tennis coach, to hear their stories.  DailyMail.com met a large cross-section of Cubans to assess the factors behind the revolt on July 11 and 12. Shops had long lines of people outside in the 95 degree heat, desperate for medicine or food, but...
    (CNN)On a recent afternoon in Montevideo, a small army of volunteers was gathering in the backyard of a house in Palermo, a neighborhood in the Uruguayan capital's south side. Some were peeling and cutting carrots; others were slicing onions and a third group was getting the pork loins ready. There was yet another group bringing in spices, salt, cooking oil and pots...many pots. There was no time to waste. Their mission was to prepare hundreds of hot meals by dinner time.This is Uruguay's version of a soup kitchen during the pandemic. Here they call it the "people's pot." Nobody gets paid for their work. Most of the food is donated. And the house where these volunteers were preparing the feast is borrowed. On this particular day they were cooking pork; but the menu varies depending on what ingredients they can get on any given day. Their mission is simple: feeding those who have fallen on hard times during the Covid-19 pandemic, although others are welcome too.Like in many other countries around the world, the pandemic has pushed into poverty many...
    Constables Kingston Bailey (pictured) and Frank Tuck broke into the occupiers’ stores at night, taking tinned food to share with the needy The brave policemen who stole food from the Nazis to feed starving Channel Islanders during the war should be regarded as heroes. But in a terrible injustice – and nearly eight decades after the men faced a Guernsey show trial – their families are still campaigning to clear their names. All of the 18 policemen are dead, but it is hoped their case will now be taken up by the Government. Occupied from June 1940 until May 1945, the Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to fall to German forces during the Second World War. The policemen’s act of resistance was inspired by a BBC broadcast giving tips on how to undermine the enemy, even though it was meant only for Europe’s underground movement as the Channel Islands were considered too vulnerable to enemy reprisals. At first the officers – deeply resentful at having to salute passing German officers – followed the BBC instructions...
    Celebrity Chef José Andrés has made it his mission to feed those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, transforming eight of his acclaimed restaurants in New York City and Washington, D.C. into gourmet soup kitchens. To date, the Michelin-starred chef and founder of World Central Kitchen has provided more than 35 million meals to those in need, he told "Special Report" host Bret Baier on Tuesday. "We saw this as an emergency," Andrés said. "Why [would] an NGO [Non-Government Organization] like World Central Kitchen be in the middle of COVID-19? Because this has been an emergency. We saw elderly homes that nobody was feeding them. All of a sudden, shelters were shutting down. Hospitals needed somebody to be fed." Andrés' solution not only feeds the millions of Americans who have been forced to rely on food banks and community kitchens for the first time as a result of the pandemic, but offers solace to the restaurant industry crippled by lockdowns and dining regulations.  MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY TEAM UP WITH WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN TO FIGHT HUNGER  "We activated restaurants, we put them back to work, we were able to channel all of the philanthropy dollars coming our way to achieve two things," he...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A lot of things get thrown out when you move, including perfectly good food. As CBS2’s Steve Overmyer reports, one nonprofit has found a solution to that problem. In a warehouse on Long Island, a food bank houses more than 1 million pounds of meals. “This comes in and immediately gets put into the bin that says ‘peanut butter,'” Long Island Cares CEO Paule Pachter told Overmyer. “Then the volunteers can create 20-, 30-pound boxes of peanut butter.” Long Island Cares is a centralized hub of food collection and delivery. (Credit: CBS2) Those pallets get taken to various food pantries for distribution. “Long Islanders are just responding in record numbers,” Pachter said. Long Island Cares is a centralized hub of food collection and delivery. Since the pandemic, visitors have increased by 43%. “There are close to 400,000 people living on Long Island that are struggling with food insecurity that are probably not going to enjoy a holiday meal with their families,” said Pachter.

    (CNN)A staple at birthday parties, bar crawls and bowling, few foods bring Americans together like pizza. And this election season, a new group aims to bring America's favorite pie to those stuck waiting in long lines.Pizza to the Polls, a nonpartisan grassroots organization, has so far sent 2,068 pizzas to voters casting their ballots in 19 states around the country in the 2020 election. The group hopes to grow its ground game even more as the election gets closer -- and the need is expected to grow."There's going to be a ton of lines this year," Scott Duncombe, Pizza to the Polls' co-founder and director, told CNN. "And so we will hopefully be good to go and spend that pizza money as fast as it comes in." The group, formed in reaction to long lines during the 2016 election, does not align with a political party. It started small -- at a few polling places in Ohio, Florida and Illinois, the group's website says -- and then expanded to expecting its "pizza delivery recruits" to supply hundreds of polling places...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Sacramento Thanksgiving morning tradition is the latest casualty of the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services announced that their annual Run to Feed the Hungry will be held virtually instead of in person. The run, which starts in front of Sacramento State and snakes through East Sacramento and the Fab 40s neighborhood, often attracts nearly 30,000 participants. Despite it going virtual, organizers say the race remains an important fundraising event for the food bank. Amid the pandemic, the food bank has already distributed more pounds of food (32 million) at this point than they did all of last year (28 million). The food bank reports that they are feeding more than 300,000 people a month. With these added pressures, organizers are urging people to sign up for the Run to Feed the Hungry as a virtual participant. People who sign up will still get a t-shirt shirt and custom bib number. The virtual run is still scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 26. People wishing to sign up can head to this website.

The mayor helped distribute food to a line of vehicles who were there to pick up food to reduce the stress on families racked by high unemployment. He said it was important to keep supporting residents who could barely afford to buy groceries, let alone pay their rents. “We have to help the community during these difficult times and the Christian Cultural Center has been at the forefront of our efforts,” the mayor told attendees. The Christian Cultural Center has been at the forefront of efforts to help the community during the crisis, including establishing a testing site for COVID-19 and anti-body tests. The community that CCC serves, has had some of the highest mortality rates for the virus in the city, many of whom are...
    A breastfeeding expert has explained the different stages of a suckling baby - and revealed why they often seem more hungry at the end of a feed. Nicky Gibbon, from West Yorkshire, is a volunteer at the Calderdale Breastfeeding Peer Support Service, which offers support and information to new mothers using their own personal experience and training.  In the video, posted on the organisation's Facebook group, Nicky used a solution made up of water containing blue dye and oil to represent the milk and squeezed it into wine glasses using a sponge to demonstrate the different stages of feeding. She also explained how a baby will 'cleverly' adapt to the weather and respond to their growth spurts to determine how much milk they need and the way they suck.  Nicky Gibbon used a dilution of water, dyed blue, with a yellow oil to represent the high-calorie, fattier content of the milk (pictured left). She mixed the solution to show how the formula is stored in the breast (right)  The jug of dyed water represents the bulk of the breast milk, while the...
