No matter if you are away from friends or family, don’t want to spend the day cooking or are simply looking forward to connecting with other community members, several organizations in and around Homer are offering free Thanksgiving meals.

Every year, the Homer United Methodist Church serves a traditional holiday meal that is open to the entire community. Pastor Lisa Talbot says they have been hosting a free dinner for the last seven years.

What makes Thanksgiving special on the Kenai Peninsula? KBBI asked three residents what makes the holiday meaningful to them.

Jeremy Hawk said he’ll take an Alaskan thanksgiving dinner over a traditional one anytime. He still thinks about the Thanksgiving he had around seven years ago when he helped cook moose meat.

“You bake it for like two hours, then you glaze it with cranberry glaze and then you can bake it for a little while longer to give the glaze a little bit of an edge,” he said.
