Alaska Food Hub

In winter months, it's necessary for peninsula residents to get their food from thousands of miles away but growing season is underway and the Alaska Food Hub opens its virtual doors today. This is the fifth year they’re offering 100% local produce in an online marketplace - with pick up sites in Homer, Soldotna and Seldovia.
