Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, April 15, 2015 -TA Where in the World? Bill and Sue Wickman, Vonnie and Rick Becker, and Jill and Charlie Brown, all of Quincy, gather with Kathy and Jim Brown, of Goodyear, Arizona, at Teakettle Junction, Death Valley, on the way to the Racetrack. CHALLENGE, from page 6A Mansfield was able to buy more produce than Revene, including apples, bananas, spinach, carrots and onions. The reason, she said, is because she spent less on grains by buying from the bulk section. "The bulk section was great," said Mansfield. "You can really just choose how much food you are going to buy." Mansfield was also able to supplement her diet with fruits and vegetables from her garden she had previously canned. This stayed within the perimeters of the challenge, since she originally bought the seeds with CalFresh money. "You can grow a lot of food with just one plant," said Mansfield. One reality that struck Revene was that certain grocery stores just cost more. Depending on which community a store is located in, $28 won't stretch as far as it might elsewhere. "It's the reality of the way people have to run businesses up here," said Revene. "But I had never paid that much attention to how costs differ from community to community. It was a bigger difference than I thought." One challenge that is unique to Plumas County regarding food security involves transportation. In 2008, Plumas Rural Services published the Mountain Food Security This meal, prepared by Health Education Coordinator Zach Revene, cost just 58 cents to make. The dinner, which consisted of a portion of vegetables, lentils, pita and a fried egg, was a healthy way to stretch a dollar. "The reason we want people who normally wouldn't even think about doing this to participate is we want people to feel that sense of reduced decision making, or make hard choices, in the same sense that a lot of people in Plumas County do every day." Zach Revene Health Education Coordinator Plumas County Public Health Project, an assessment of food security in Plumas County. The report showed that limited transportation was a barrier to food security in Plumas County. "For someone that doesn't have a car, a grocery store 10 miles away might as well be like a trip to RenD," said Revene. This type of insight is just one of many that participants are experiencing first hand while doing the week-long challenge. The challenge does not end until April 26, enough time for more to participate. To review the challenge's guidelines and to participate, go to Facebook.com/ PlumasHealth.
