chicago says all its public schools will use remote learning at the start of the new school year. and los angeles announced a crackdown on house parties and threatened to cut off water and power. we start with our lead national correspondent david begnaud in miami. first, tell us about this enforcement effort in l.a. >> so, jeff, if the city of los angeles now gets a report, and they can confirm there's a large gathering of people at a private property, they are going to ask the utility service in los angeles to cut water and power to that property within 48 hours. this drastic decision follows a party earlier in the week near beverly hills where the police could clearly see and cameras showed people gathering together at a large party. here in the south where we are, the virus is spreading out of control. and we want to zero in this morning on the state of mississippi which is leading the nation in a way they don't want to. cases per capita are the highest in mississippi than anywhere else. and doctors are alarmed.
this was the scene inside the icu at the university of mississippi medical center in jackson yesterday. it is mississippi's largest and most specialized hospital. it is the only one that can offer the complex medical procedures that most critically ill patients need. and it is completely full. >> within our walls, we have 14 patients that need an icu bed, and there's not one available. >> that's dr. luann woodward, the dean of the school of medicine at the university of mississippi. with cases on the rise and nearly 25% of the cases coming back positive, the current crisis in mississippi may go on for months. >> i'm hoping the tide is turning, but i think there has been a very deep disconnect between many people in mississippi and the understanding of what we're seeing. ♪ >> reporter: in neighboring louisiana, there was a prayer service held at teurlings
catholic high school for 19-year-old david lemaire. we spoke to his father mark. >> how many of your children were infected by the virus? >> four out of five. >> were you and your wife infected? >> yes. >> david and his younger brother jacob were both hospitalized with coronavirus. and put in the same icu. at one point, the brothers even shaird the same room. that is where david took this picture of jacob looking back at his brother with clear concern in his eyes. >> why did they bring him in the room together at one point? >> because david's condition had deteriorated, and they are very close. and thought that would be a good -- good for both of them. >> david was airlifted to new orleans for more complex medical treatments. mark went with him, seen here by david's side holding his hand. as machines, oxygenated david's blood to give his lungs a rest. but the virus had ravaged this 19-year-old's lungs beyond
repair. david died on july 31st after more than one month in the hospital. >> my son david was a very vibrant, very alive college student. i've learned a lot about my son and about how compassionate he was. and how deep his faith was. this loss is overwhelming, honestly, for our family. >> reporter: i told mark that one of david's high school teachers told me that david is remembered by his high school as being one of the nicest kids on campus. what a beautiful thing to be remembered by. i want you to know that david was treated with every drug available, remdesivir, convolessent plasma, steroids, they gave him everything they could. david had asthma as a child but hadn't been treated with medication since the fifth grade. he was running cross-country in high school and running several miles a day the week before he was infected with the virus. >> david, your reporting once again driving home the fact that no one is safe from the
coronavirus. and we should all take precautions, as you've reported. wear a mask. thank you, david begnaud. we appreciate it. chicago has announced plans to make its public schools remote to fight the coronavirus. it is a change from a previous hybrid plan. adriana diaz reports from chicago. >> even while we've taken significant steps forward out of this crisis, we also have needed to take some steps back. >> reporter: with coronavirus cases creeping up in chicago, mayor lori lightfoot said remote learning is the best option for the city's 350,000 students, though she acknowledged it will be a struggle for parents. adriana alvarez is a single mom who works at mcdonald's. her 8-year-old son manny goes to school in a nearby district also doing remote learning. we first met her nearly the pandemic in march. >> if school closes, i don't know what i'm going to do. it's just me and him. i don't have anybody else.
>> reporter: she was just as worried about school when whey checked back in with her yesterday. >> it's either i dw g go to wor provide for him or stay home with him. >> is stopping work an option? >> no, i am the only financial support that he has. it's just me and him. and if i stop working, we both stop eating. so i'm literally stuck. >> reporter: it's a problem parents, especially single parents, are facing across the country. 15 of the nation's largest 25 school districts will be online only. affecting more than 3.4 million kids. in schools that have reopened, coronavirus cases are already surfacing. over 100 students in mississippi are now quarantining after six students and a staff member tested positive. and at a school in north carolina, part of a network of schools that vice president pence visited and praised for reopening, all fourth grade students and a teacher are now
quarantining after a student there tested positive. but for some parents whose kids must learn from home, there are growing concerns they could fall behind. >> definitely worried about his education. i am not a teacher. i feel like online can only teach so much. teachers are definitely, you know, a key point to their education. >> chicago's mayor says they will provide support to parents who can't afford to stay home but so far there are few details. as for the nation's largest school district, new york city, it's announced a hybrid plan with a few days a week of in-person instruction but new york's governor hasn't yet approved that plan. jericka? >> adriana, all right. so many waiting to see what happens with the stimulus package because of the amount of people that need to go to work but also have a dilemma of who is going to watch their children. thank you, adriana. facebook has taken action against what it calls harmful misinformation from president trump on the coronavirus.
the company deleted a post by the president that included a false statement about children and the virus. the same clip was taken down by twitter. the trump campaign called that flagrant bias. weijia jiang reports from the white house. >> if you look at children, children are almost -- and i would almost say definitely, but almost immune from this disease. >> reporter: for the first time ever on wednesday, facebook removed a post from president trump's page in which he made that false claim about the coronavirus. comments the company called harmful misinformation. twitter also demanded that trump campaign delete a tweet with the same video, freezing the account until officials agreed to take it down. still, mr. trump defended the comment. >> if you look at children, they are able to throw it off very easily. they may get it, but they get it, and it doesn't vhave much o an impact on them. >> reporter: more than 250,000 children under age 17 have gotten infected.
studies show they recover better than adults but they can spread the virus to older people. the ongoing pandemic is also creating uncertainty about november's election. the president continued to say that mail-in voting leads to widespread fraud without providing evidence. >> out of common sense, and pure basic, beautiful intelligence, you know it can't work. >> reporter: but arizona's governor, republican doug ducey, told the president in an oval office meeting that he was confident in his state's mail-in voting system. >> this is no time to experiment. this is a time to go with the tried and true and in arizona, our system works very well. >> reporter: on capitol hill, white house and congressional negotiators wrapped up a tenth day of talks over covid relief packages for the american public. and they're still clashing over whether to pass a comprehensive deal or smaller measures. president trump says he is considering taking executive
action if congress can't reach an agreement. jeff? >> weijia, thank you very much. investigators in beirut, lebanon, are working to find out if tuesday's gigantic explosion was caused by negligence. the blast killed at least 135 people, including one american. around 5,000 others are injured. imtiaz tyab is in beirut where a massive recovery effort is under way. what do you see there? >> coming into this city that i know so well, i have never seen it devastated quite like this before. a quarter of a million people made homeless in a matter of seconds. now we haven't learned much more about the american who was killed in this blast or the several other americans who were injured. but we do know that a vast search and rescue effort continues. this hellscape was once beirut's port. now laid to waste by over 2700 tons of ammonium nitrate. how such a vast quantity of such volatile material was allowed to
rot for over six years in a warehouse so close to the city center is still being investigated. the lebanese government is putting the port's managers under house arrest while it pieces together how the russian-owned cargo ignited. many are blaming the country's ruling elite after reports surfaced suggesting officials had repeatedly warned the dangerous chemicals needed to be removed. so few were spared, including little sophie in intensive care, whose brain is bleeding from shattered glass. her parents say they also lost their home. >> i tried to protect her, but i couldn't. >> reporter: there are still some moments of hope, like when rescuers pulled this man from the rubble 16 hours after the explosion.
there's also music. 78-year-old may melki survived the civil war and later conflicts with israel. her home may now be in ruins but her piano skills and resolve are as strong as ever. >> each time these catastrophes happen, we stand up and start again. >> reporter: lebanon has been suffering on so many fronts. first the crashing economy, then the pandemic, and now this disaster. this isn't a country that is on the brink. it's deep in the abyss. jericka? >> imtiaz tyab for us in beirut, thank you. nearly 2 million homes along the east coast are still without power this morning following tropical storm isaias. six states have now declared a state of emergency. officials in some hard-hit areas say it could take days for power to be restored. investigations are under way in new york and connecticut over whether utility companies were
unprepared for the storm. at least nine people were killed by the storm. many by falling trees and in flash floods. turning to the presidential race, the trump campaign wants an extra debate with presumptive democratic nominee joe biden about a month from now, before early voting begins in some states. three debates are scheduled right now. september 29th, october 15th and october 22nd. ed o'keefe is covering campaign 2020. all right, ed. what else could change between now and november? >> everything, vlad. first, there's a debate over debates continuing. both parties are completely scrapping plans to hold anything resembling normal political conventions. the biden campaign announced neither he, his running mate nor any party leader will speak from milwaukee at the democratic national convention as originally planned. democrats now say the city of milwaukee will serve as a control room of sorts for a completely virtual convention that will include joe biden accepting the nomination from his home state of delaware.
republicans already scrapped plans for their convention in jacksonville, florida, and charlotte, north carolina, and president trump is now considering accepting his party's nomination from the white house. >> i think it would be a very convenient idea. it's something that we threw out. it would be a very cost conscious by comparison to any other location. >> reporter: but. including members of the president's own party, questioned whether that would violate the hatch act, prohibiting government officials from participating in politics. and the use of government property for campaign activity. republican senator john thune said, i think anything you do on federal property would seem to be problematic. the president brushed off legal concerns noting he's exempt from the act. >> well, it is legal. there is no hatch act because it doesn't pertain to the president. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi said it would not happen and called it a distraction. >> and he is diverting attention from the fact that people are dying in our country.
>> reporter: as the president and biden continue campaigning virtually, the former vice president took questions at a conference of black and latino journalists, and was asked what he would do about border security. >> trump campaigned on build that wall. are you willing to tear that wall down? >> no, there will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration. >> reporter: biden also said if he's president, border protection would be based on high technology. as for his running mate, we're still standing by for that announcement, but the former vice president tweeted last night, quote, i'll let you know soon. vlad? >> and we will be waiting. ed o'keefe for us, thank you as always. new research raises questions about the safety of advanced driver assistance technology and how much drivers should rely on those systems. but first, it is
ahead. we go to scottsdale, arizona where the coronavirus is hitting small businesses hard. >> reporter: when it shutdown this tourism business hard, it's when hathe businesses make halff its income for the year. and now, as you can see, it's a ghost town. on "cbs this morning" we'll take a snapshot of a main street desperately struggling to stay alive. however you go back, we've got your back. ♪ ...to soccer practices... ...and new adventures. you hope the more you give the less they'll miss. but even if your teen was vaccinated against meningitis in the past...

welcome back to this morn"c morning." research raises new questions about technology in many new cars that takes over some of the driving duties. aaa tested five advanced driver-assistance systems and found on average they had an issue every eight miles. some failed to stop for an obstacle in the road. kris van cleave has been digging into this research. good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. these driver-assistanc systems are becoming more common, and they are improving. what they don't do is make any car truly self-driving. and aaa found while there's got more work to do, the safest feature is still a human driver.
steve sequiera loves his tesla and it's autopilot, a driver assistance system that can automatically maintain a vehicle's speed and lane. he says it works pretty well but it's not perfect. >> there's times where this doesn't do exactly what you thought it would because it's thinking on its own terms. its own algorithm. it might be different from what you would do. >> reporter: the driver of this tesla says autopilot was engaged during this july accident in southern california. his car in the center moves over and slows when the semi drifts into its lane. just as the suv changed lanes behind it. and here an arizona state trooper was stopped on the side of interstate 10 last month when a tesla slammed into him. its driver told troopers autopilot was active. new research from aaa found that kind of crash may be particularly challenging for several other advanced driver assistance systems. 66% of the time they hit a simulated disabled vehicle during closed course testing. >> that's alarm because people
can become overconfident. >> i think people watching this are going to wonder if they have this in their cars, is this kind of technology safe to use on the everyday road. >> aaa believes this technology is safe if the person that is using it uses it correctly. i think we've seen some instances where that's not the case. >> reporter: nearly 93% of all new cars have at least one available advanced driver assistance feature. they can help maintain your speed, your lane, and your distance from other cars. even automatically hit the brakes. during 4,000 miles of real-world testing, the five assemblies evaluated by aaa experienced an issue on average every eight miles. tesla's autopilot was not tested. most of the issues had on this do with maintaining the vehicle's lane, sometimes getting too close to guard rails or other vehicles. we experienced that during a 2018 drive in a tesla model three. when two lanes on a busy new jersey freeway merged together,
autopilot nearly steered cnet's tim stevens and me into another car. >> it nearly drove us into the subaru there. >> not quite a perfect system. at that point the car was not aware that there other another car about to steer into us. >> reporter: aaa found the systems tended to disengage with little notice. aaa did not break out how each individual system tested, instead they looked at the technology as a whole. tesla's autopilot was. part of this round -- was not part of this round of testing, and tesla didn't respond to our request for comment. they are reviewing the results of the research, but it's believed the technology can avoid crashes and save lives. but what it does do not is replace the most important safety feature in a car, that is the driver. jericka? >> thank you. so important what i heard there from that aaa rep saying technology is safe if the person is using it correctly. thanks again. ahead, the impact of the coronavirus on a city that relies heavily on tourism.

fbi agents reportedly seized multiple firearms from jake paul in a raid of his mansion yesterday. these are armored vehicles on the streets of california. authorities did not say why the raid was being carried out, only that the search was related to an investigation. the fbi says no arrests are planned. paul has not returned our request for comment. in a statement, his lawyer says they will cooperate with the investigation. last month the 23-year-old was called out by authorities for holding a massive house party during the pandemic. video you can see here shows people packed side by side without wearing masks. paul was also facing charges in connection with lootsing at an arizona mall. those charges were dropped yesterday. so again, this is important because you've got kids in the house -- he has made millions of dollars, he's guy 20 million youtube followers, worth about $11 million. your kids are watching him. sort of big news. >> yeah. don't hold unsafe parties. also a graduation ceremony is in the news.

wonderful to see. >> the school says it has a dress code for the ceremony and, quote, any graduate wearing a cap, gown, or mask with any message would have been asked to remove it. >> wow. it's so nice to hear his father and the son talk about just the amount of support that they have. it's not about saying other people don't matter but just really understanding this moment that we're in. that was -- that was nice of them. glad you got the chance to talk to them, too. you have another story, kind of an out-of-the-box ad that's making people smile? >> all right. i bet you've never seen a commercial for a library like this one. take a look. >> don't have a computer? give us a call. we're here for you! romance, we got 'em. and what's all this cost? just free low payments of zero, zero, zero dollars. it's crazy how much you get for free! >> zero, zero, zero dollars.

stimulus deal might be reached? >> again, that's not my lane. i'm the assistant to the president for office of trade and manufacturing. i can break news on cbs. the other thing we're doing that's going to be important today, the president is going to sign an executive order which is going to deal with one of our most pressing problems related to this pandemic. if we've learned anything in this pandemic, it's that we're dangerously dependent for our pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and equipment on the rest of the world. and particularly with pharmaceuticals. the key starting materials, the active pharmaceutical ingredients and the finished dosing which come to us. what this executive order does it's a beautiful thing. it's buy american for our government agencies like the department of defense and veteran's affairs. it sweeps away some of the regulatory barriers to traditional manufacturing of pharmaceuticals on our shores and innovation so we can keep
drug prices down. it basically pushes advanced and continuous manufacturing technology. this is a beautiful package. the president is going to sign it today. i would say to the people of america it's so important as we fight this pandemic and possibly future problems that we bring our supply chains home, not just for pharmaceuticals but for all of the critical things we need to make this a great country. >> why the focus as the negotiations continue, why the focus on the payroll tax cut? >> i'm not sure that there's a continued focus on it. that happens to be one of the most effective ways to get money into the pockets of the american people. if you are a worker and there's a payroll tax cut, it's a 12% wage hike. that's good for american workers. i think again, this is not my responsibility or lane. i have great faith in mark meadows leading this. in it looks like chuck schumer and nancy pelosi are between the
rhetoric, they're coming together. the mission here is to make sure that the american people who are out of work get relief from that and that we also have an economy that we can rebuild. the two things president trump will do, and this is going to be a great speech today. i urge everybody to watch it and read it. it's beat the virus, and build this economy back to where it was in january 15th when he built the most beautiful and strong economy in american history. we had 3.5% unemployment rates. rising wages for blue collar workers. we have a long row to hoe here. make no mistake, this package is important. it can't just be writing checks to people now. it's also got to be putting in place structural choices so we can rebuild our economy. there's a bill, for example, that lindsey graham has that
would bring our personal protective equipment back to u.s. shores with buy american provisions. those are the kinds of things that can go into this bill that will help american workers and make us safe at the same time. >> while the virus continues, peter, what did you make of the president's comments yesterday when he said that children are almost immune from the virus? >> i'm not an epidemiologist. i think just as a matter of fact, we see -- >> you're on the task force, though. >> actually, i'm not on the task force, but be that as it may, what i do, what my job is, so the american people understand, folks like dr. fauci, they're urging people to wear masks. my job is to make sure we manufacture enough masks. i'm the defense production act policy coordinator. when you have in maine an increase in swab reduction of 20 million swabs that's something my office working with the president had to do. when we stand up in factories in five weeks to make masks by

plagued this country since its birth. i have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a black man or a black person somehow being dehumanized or hurt or killed or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. and it -- it has led to a weight that i haven't felt in my life in a while. >> to help manage her depression, michelle obama says she's been keeping a regular routine, reaching out to friends and family, and exercising. guys, leave it to the former first lay to encapsulate how so many of us are feeling. and she says that even when she experiences these emotional highs and lows, she tries not to be so hard on herself. if she's not feeling the treadmill on that one particular day, she's going to give herself a break, spend more time with

comes out tomorrow morning. more than one million americans have filed for unemployment in each of the last 20 weeks. all right. it is time to bring some of the stories that are the "talk of the table" this morning. this is where we each pick a story we'd like to share with each of you -- each of us and all of you. get this right. jericka, you're up first. >> all right. in an unprecedented move, ohio is calling on lawyers to voluntarily staff polling stations this fall since the state is facing a poll worker shortage due to the pandemic. chief justice o'connor says it is a great way for attorneys to give back to the state. >> the opportunity for attorneys to be poll workers is just one piece of the puzzle. it could turn out to be a very big piece and very helpful on election day so people who do show up to the polls are processed quickly, they don't have to linger at the poll site, and they can get in and out. they can cast their ballot. a presidential year. big election.
>> so, lawyers will put in a lot of time between training and the long hours at the polling stations. one day of training. if you work the polling station, that's 5:30 in the morning until about 7:30 that night. in return, they'll get a chance to earn what's called continuing legal education or cle credits, four credits. usually you need 24 every two years in the state of ohio. what's really interesting, too, when you think about poll workers, generally they're over 60 years old. this is a way of bringing in some younger people, keeping people safe that need to probably stay at home because they're high risk. and they're looking for 35,000 total to run these polls. so they're hoping that out of the 44,000 attorneys in ohio that some of them will -- there's a lot of numbers there. a lot of them will help out. thought it was pretty cool. >> interesting. >> yeah. >> important stuff. if you are tired of working remotely from your dining room table, las vegas has a deal for you that you might not be able

cold it was. this concept, wait for it inspired from a scene from "star wars" film. "empire strikes back." the scene -- yes, luke's right hand is replaced by a robotic one, and he seemingly gets his sense of touch back. this is really remarkable. the prosthetics that are being developed here are actually faster than the nerve receptors that we have. and so, it's really, really cool. and i love how young scientist dr. benjamin key came up with this because he's a fan of "star wars." and it reminds us sometimes that movies like science fiction movies can inform people who are very, very smart, scientists and doctors think about what they do. >> we can always rely on you for the "star wars" reference, vlad. >> you know it. search night and day for them. all right.
so as mart of the community series with ted. philip is the co-founder and ceo of the center for policing equity. the center partners with law enforcement to address bias in policing. in his 2019 ted talk said bias starts with rethinking how we think about racism. >> when we change the definition of racism from attitudes to behaviors, we transform that problem from impossible to solvable. because you can measure behaviors. and when you can measure a problem, you can tap into one of the only universal roll rules organizational success. you hold yourself to that metric. every other organization measures success this way, why can't we do that in policing? >> police departments he's worked with have seen a 25% drop in arrests and a 26% decrease in
use of force incidents. philip joins us now. good see you, philip. good morning. >> good morning, vlad. >> all right. so, let's get into this, you say we have to change the definition of racism from attitude to behaviors. explain that. >> so the most common definition that people of racism it's somehow inside of us in our contaminated hearts and contaminated minds. while that's opinion as a messaging tool, it's not how discrimination works. it turns out if you want people to stop engaging in biased behaviors you should change the behaviors just directly. when you do that, the comments about racism is much less about that character the things that people get defensive about it's more about the things that you can actually do. when you work in polices it's a good idea to turn down the
temperature of the people in the room. to say, here's a path, go ahead and take it, and if you take it, everybody is better off. that solution, that change in definition isn't only scientifically accurate, it changes the problem of who i am to what i can do. >> if somebody sees me less than human, or believe they're superior to me, wouldn't that inform how they treat me? >> yeah, it absolutely does. it's not that prejudice doesn't matter. it's not that discrimination doesn't matter. it just that it matters a lot less than we think. so when i teach in class, if you ever think about somebody who you think of as a liar, right, do they lie with every word that comes out of their mouth? probably not. they probably lie when most people lie, when they're motivated to, they think they can get away with it or they think the punishment's going to be slight.
now, turn that around. who else would lie when they're motivated to to think they can get away with it where the punishment is going to be slight? that's the group of people known as everybody. situations are far more powerful than attitudes in predicting behaviors. when we focus on situations and the behaviors themselves, it's easier to make the change. it's, in fact, easier to change attitudes when you change behaviors than the other way around. right? it seems complicated, but when you just say i want the behaviors to stop and you get them to stop, you start seeing a better world, and honestly, people's attitudes will follow. >> so when you're working with police departments, give us an example of this ideas in action. what do you tell them? >> sure. we start with the data. so give an example in las vegas, the sheriff at the time, a police department that has a sheriff, said, hey, we're concerned we might be using force too often. the community was very concerned. they were up in arms and asking the justice department come and investigate.
so we went in and said, all right, why and where. it turns out it was after their foot pursuits that was disproportional in terms of their use of force. so why would that be? why would foot pursuits be disproportionately using force? well, it turns out if you're an officer and you're chasing after somebody, your adrenaline's up, your heart is pumping. you're sure that person's a bad guy because who runs from cops but bad guys. even if they surrender and say "please don't hurt me," they might get a shot to the kidneys for making me run. as soon as we got back to the police department we said we know how to do something about that. let's change the training so they have to count to ten, they can't touch the person until someone shows up. they're basically just de-escalating before they go hands-on with somebody. in the year following, they reduced their use of force across the board by 23%. these are the kind of insights that data can produce when you mix it with analytics and behavioral science. start here, and you can start at least gradually bringing down the problem area because you're holding yourself accountable to it.
>> so, phillip, you also in 2015 you started working with the minneapolis police department. you did help them reduce police use of force. of course, we are now living in the moment where we have seen police officers in minneapolis kill george floyd. and, of course, that has sparked the moment that we are all living in right now. a lot of people will wonder and say, well, did it not stick? what happened? >> yeah. >> so, i think the answer to that is the same answer i have for people looking at democracy. sometimes when you're looking and working on something that really matters, you wake up every day knowing you're going to fail at least a little bit. in minneapolis, we were proud of the work that we did. we were proud to bring down use of force by about 18% over the course of three years. and we also knew there were pockets of the culture that were just sitting waiting it all out. they said this chief, most chiefs in major cities, only have their job for about 2.5 years. i don't like it, i don't want to participate in the training if i show up, i'm not going to listen, i don't care about the policies. we know that can happen anyplace. and just like democracy, lots of
times we get setbacks on the way to getting there. so it was a gut punch. i feel for the people who live there. the organizers, the activists, who it's our job to empower, they've been working on this much longer than the three years we were there, it's heartbreaking. and also, it doesn't mean you got to throw it all out. it does mean we have to go much, much bigger if we're going to meet this moment. this can't just be about reforms that are incremental. it has to be a wholesale reevaluation about the way we deliver public safety. if minneapolis taught us anything, it shows while reforms can work, they're never enough because policing exists within the broader context. and that broader context definitely needs change. that's why we've seen people out in the streets for 70 days in the streets since. >> really interesting. philip atiba [upbeat music] ♪ today was the day that i put everything in perspective. ♪

(vo) good feeds our connections. good feeds us all. hormel natural choice lunch meats. our series "a more perfect union" aims to show that what unites us as americans is far greater than what divides us. this morning, a grassroots

took an interest in supporting our community and during a time where pantries were closing down. and when they shut down, it left more and more people, especially those who recently went into unemployment, without the resources they need in order to provide for their family. >> reporter: in a time when, you know, millions of people are getting sick and millions of americans are out of work. >> yeah. >> reporter: and are struggling to put food on the table. in is one way that you're doing your part. >> absolutely. >> reporter: you can now found community fridges, sometimes called freedges across the country each with its own personality. like this one in charlotte, north carolina, created by shamelle jackson. >> bread, vegetables, we hav fruits at the bottom. >> reporter: the fridge at foco cafe in colorado is filled with fresh produce from local farmers, restaurants, and gardens from around the community. >> people are able to grab a handful of carrots or whatever there might be and be able to feed their families fresh, healthy locally sourced food.
>> reporter: these fridges are a lifeline for people like nick garcia in new york who lost his job back in may. >> really been helping me. and i can only imagine how many others. >> we want to make sure we're inclusive to everyone because everyone deserves to eat. >> and guys, i can't stress enough how much this is about the community. the mena brothers started universe city with other individuals all from the brownsville section of brooklyn. they have deep roots in that community. some going back several generations. and when we were there, the place was buzzing with activity. >> great. love the term freedges. >> creating that community and introducing people also to great food who may not have that option depending on where you're at. >> we'll be right back.
