“If we all stick together, we’ll get what we need”

From the Facebook page of Sierra FoodWineArt magazine:

We know that the coronavirus pandemic has created hardships to our restaurants, wineries and breweries, performing arts groups and others throughout our region.

This month our Sierra FoodWineArt magazine made a generous donation to Music in the Mountains, one of the region’s flagship nonprofit performing arts groups, and more are in the works.

Since March, we’ve been supporting restaurants including Twelve 28 KitchenIke’s Quarter Cafe and Emily’s Catering, among others, with “curbside pickup” dining. We understand the need to support each other.

Like others, we had been looking forward to MIM Chorus’ concert with the California Youth Symphony (pictured here). Instead, the MIM Chorus created a video dedicated to “the helpers” on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis (You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mu4y_CFFqF8).

Our next issue will be dedicated to “coming together,” much as our Winter 2019 issue honored the victims of the Camp Fire in Chico. As singer-songwriter Utah Phillips put it: “If we all stick together, we’ll get what we need.”
