CONCOW, Calif. - Camp Fire survivors from Concow and surrounding areas were treated to a gourmet lunch on Easter Sunday at their beloved local park.
The Bay Area non-profit organization White Pony Express provided the meal for dozens of families, and they included special treats for the kids.
For several months White Pony Express has been making regular runs from Pleasant Hill to Concow to deliver free food and clothing to the Camp Fire survivors.
It was described as a special time amidst the ongoing struggle by survivors to return to some kind of normalcy.
Judith Parker from the White Pony Express group said it was a day of joy and celebration. She said a big project of the day was the taking of family portraits, since so many people from Concow, Yankee Hill and surrounding areas lost all their photographs.
White Pony Express is working with some Butte County organizations to design some long-term solutions for the food security following the wildfire.
