The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank is fully open to the public once again, serving regular meals in its Fireweed Diner starting June 16. To celebrate another step toward more usual operations after a year upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, the food bank threw a Spring Festival in conjunction with its weekly Farmers Fresh Market from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 15. KDLL reporter Sabine Poux visited the food bank to get a taste of the festival.
