Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 16, 2014 5A High Sierra lefto00J'er perishables stock Love Kitchen Laura Beaton Staff Writer Ibeaton@plumasnews.com What do you do with a thousand pounds of leftover perishable foodstuffs? Thanks to one woman's efforts, 1,000 pounds of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products and more, left over from the High Sierra Music Festival, is now in the bellies of Quincy-area families in need. A woman who goes by the name Julz was responsible for obtaining the unused perishables from the kitchen of the High Sierra Music Fest. About five years ago, Julz worked in the festival's kitchen preparing food for festival staff and entertainers. When the festival was over, she offered to distribute the leftover food to those in need. The collaboration Julz forged with the festival has provided thousands of pounds of food for local food banks and distribution programs such as CAN (Community Assistance Network), The Resource Center and Senior Nutrition. For those in need who are unable to get to one of the distribution sites, Julz offers free delivery right to their doors. She also prepares Fresh produce and perishables are unloaded for distribution at The Resource Center in Quincy on July 8. About 1,000 pounds of food was procured by Julz, standing in truck bed, to distribute to families and friends in need. Helping out are Nicholas Henderson, left, Glenn McConnell and The Resource Center Office Manager Leah Irons. Photo by Laura Beaton meals for people in need -- including specialty items for those "dentally challenged." Julz said that these "easily edible meals," as well as the more traditional meals she prepares, are often gourmet dinners that most of the recipients could not afford to buy in a restaurant. She said she has been serving families and friends for eight or nine years in an endeavor she calls the Love Kitchen. Last year Julz received 120 pounds of fresh chicken from the music festival, and held a free community barbecue at Gansner Park. Other times Julz has parked her truck and invited community members to "go shopping" for whatever they need. Some of the perishables unloaded at The Resource Center on July 8 were organic nectarines, celery, summer squash, basil, trays of baby back ribs and salad greens. What food is not fit for human consumption goes for . chicken feed. Julz takes compost to families and friends with chickens and in return receives eggs that she either distributes or cooks with to create meals for others. At this year's music lest, Julz made a new connection -- Conscious Alliance. The '., nonprofit organization hosted. a booth at the festival where canned goods could be donated. Conscious Alliance in turn distributes canned and boxed goods to area food banks and programs like the Love Kitchen. Julz said previous years have resulted in up to 4,000 pounds of perishable food being donated by High Sierra. She said one year The Resource Center was nearly full of perishables, but word got out quickly, and by 4 p.m. the food was all gone. The Love Kitchen gets no funding-- it exists because of Julz's desire to help those in need.

Due to a rise in expense, the rugged freight route may never again be seen by the eyes of a passenger. That is why Train and Travel International owner Chris Skow is bringing the train to Portola Railroad Days one more time. Beginning in Emeryville, the Feather River Express, made up of streamlined classic private rail cars circa World War II, will stop in Martinez, Davis, Sacramento and Oroville to pick up passengers before heading up the Canyon to Portola. Skow said he had to work hard to get the opportunity to run a passenger train through the route, as it is owned by Union Pacific and has a high density of freight train traffic. However, with his persistence, more than 200 people will travel through the scenic Canyon and enjoy the weekend in Portola. The train will have a number of classes for the trip, including coach, dome car, You may still qualify to enroll in health coverage if you experience certain life events during the year!
