COVID-19 Resources

UPDATED 9/2021

See below, as well as our Isles’ Pandemic Response page, for resources and additional information regarding how Isles is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Emergency Food Access

Isles, in partnership with Trenton Health Team, maintained a map of food distribution sites.

Financial Solutions and Housing Counseling

In this rapidly evolving situation, even in households where finances are not typically a cause for concern, individuals may soon find themselves unable to pay their bills and/or meet basic expenses. For information on financial assistance, bill payment relief and COVID-19 scams, click here

Isles continues to serve our Isles Financial Solutions and housing counseling customers with a combination of virtual and in-person meetings as needed.

Urban Agriculture

In times of economic instability and supply chain disruptions, having the capacity to grow your own food is a critical skill. Isles is working with our plant & seed suppliers to ensure that we have resources to distribute to our network of school & community gardens. In addition, we are working to make upcoming trainings available virtually. Email urbanag@isles.org to be added to our email distribution list for upcoming webinars.

An important update from the FDA regarding hand sanitizers: they have seen an increase in products labeled to contain ethanol, but have tested positive for toxic levels of methanol contamination. Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a substance that can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested and can be life-threatening when ingested. Check the labels of your hand sanitizers against the FDA’s product list here: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-updates-hand-sanitizers-methanol#products
