Top 60 Life Trends in May

From Charitable Pandemic Cookbooks to Distancing Communication Apps

— May 26, 2020 — Lifestyle
These May 2020 life trends range from charitable pandemic cookbooks to distancing communication apps.

Froyo Party, a video chat platform calling itself "the anti-lonely app" is a standout that aims to encourage virtual connections during social distancing efforts. Going beyond just video chats, the platform encourages learning, collaboration, creative projects and more, all with a simple and streamlined interface.

Another notable example is 'Family Meal: Recipes from Our Community,' a pandemic-themed cookbook that highlights recipes from top celebrity chefs including Alison Roman, Ina Garten, Samin Nosrat and more. Proceeds of the cookbook are being donated to restaurants and hospitality workers who have experienced forced business closures, layoffs and more. Similarly, the Northern Lights live stream by The Churchill Northern Studies Centre in Manitoba, Canada aims to raise funds for the travel and tourism industry that has also been greatly impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
