Food solidarity map, Chile

Melisa Miranda Correa, May 2020

Este mapa muestra un registro de iniciativas comunitarias y locales de ayuda. Busca reflejar la diversidad territorial y la distribución de diferentes iniciativas que iniciaron en mayo 2020. Se ha basado en publicaciones ligadas a las cuentas La Olla común, Apoya la olla y No mas hambre. Los datos que aquí se muestran han sido compartidos por los propios usuarios para la difusión de contactos y donaciones.  La ubicación de los puntos se basó en la información disponible compartida por los mismos, algunas hacen referencia a direcciones exactas, otras a localizaciones generales. 

Recomendamos a quienes quieran donar que se pongan en contacto con las diversas iniciativas para confirmar la recepción de la ayuda. Este movimiento de apoyo territorial es orgánico y desde abajo hacia arriba, por lo que puede ir cambiando con las semanas incluso días. Lo importante es reflejar el espíritu local y comunitario de solidaridad y mapear la nueva realidad que vive nuestro país. 

Facing the current food crisis in Chile, many community initiatives have emerged to provide assistance to families in most need. The composition of these initiatives has a collective nature, reflecting the reactivation of local solidarity networks. However, these initiatives such as common pots and food collection for solidarity boxes do not have regular financing, so that week after week they survive based on donations.

This map aims to facilitate the visualisation of those initiatives facilitating the acmes of local people. Territories are mapped in order to reflect the current reality and record this solidarity bottom up network

Map description (translated from Spanish):

This map shows a record of community and local aid initiatives. It seeks to reflect the territorial diversity and distribution of different initiatives that began in May 2020. It has been based on publications linked to the twitter accounts of La Olla común, Apoya la olla y No mas hambre. The data shown here has been shared by the users themselves for the dissemination of contacts and donations. The location of points was based on the available information shared by the initiatives, some referring to exact addresses, others to general locations.

We recommend that those who want to donate contact the various initiatives to confirm receipt of aid. This movement of territorial support is organic and from the bottom up, so it can change with the weeks or even days. The important thing is to reflect the local and community spirit of solidarity and map the new reality that our country lives.
