Mutual aid networks are becoming more common as the COVID-19 pandemic increases the number of people who are experiencing food insecurity. In the UK, this is being addressed by COVID-19 Mutual Aid which is a group of volunteers that are establishing ways to support the organizing of local community groups who are looking to help each other throughout the crisis. The mutual aid network does this by providing resources and connecting people to their nearest local group. On its website, the organization has also created a map which would certainly be beneficial to visualization.
According to COVID-19 Mutual Aid UK's website, "the basic idea is to coordinate care efforts for people who are self-isolating, especially if they are part of a more at-risk demographic including the elderly, disabled and people with other pre-existing health issues.
