Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 20, 2015 9A Students sh James Wilson Staff Writer Youth from Portola, Greenville and Quincy shared various problems in the communities to an audience at the Town Hall Theatre on May 13 in the first Photovoice showcase. Presenters shared photos :they took around their communities and presented them along with their stories that demonstrated problems in Plumas County. Topics presented included safe routes to school, healthy versus unhealthy retail environments and access to healthy food. Public Health employees Zach Revene and Megan Mansfield also presented a Photovoice on the recent $4-a-Day Challenge they undertook. Revene and Mansfield highlighted the difficulties involved with 00case problems through photos eating healthy on' a limited budget. Students in the Feather River College club Enactus presented first on hunger among students at the college. Accompanying the FRC students' photos were alarming statistics. According to the presentation, 45 percent of FRC students will go extended periods of times without eating-- up to four days. Knowing how to cook is another problem The students said that 37 percent of the campus community does not know how to cook anything at all, and 66 percent don't know how to cook a nutritious meal. The student presenters highlighted several different resources for free or cheap food available to college students in Quincy, but said that most students are unaware of those resources. Members of Portola's Friday Night Live group presented a Photovoice involving safe routes to school Their message summed up was "damaged roads equals damaged lives." Problem areas the Portola students documented on film included a lack of school-crossing signs, a lack of sidewalks, and a high voltage sign that reads "Keep away," right on the walking path. The Friday Night Live group from Greenville gave the final presentation -- on retail environments in Indian Valley. An area the group specifically looked at was the placement of alcoholic products. One photo presented showed an ad for beer placed next to an ad for fishing bait, subliminally suggesting that beer and fishing go hand-in-hand. Another photo showed alcohol on the shelves next to soda, a popular product for children. Another photo showed numerous mixed messages found in a grocery store. Alcohol was placed near a poster supporting the Wounded Warrior Project and children's breakfast foods. Group members said they had an idea of what to look for when walking into the stores, but found a lot more examples than they thought they would. Public Health gave each student group a stipend of $1,000 to create the Photovoice. They were able to access half their stipend at the beginning of the project and the other half after completion. Enactus plans to use its stipend to start a microfinance program for professors at Great Lakes Regional College in Kanungu, Uganda. Many professors there need side businesses in order to afford to continue teaching.
