Kenai Peninsula Food Bank’s Spring Festival set for Friday

The event will feature a wide swath of vendors, including lots of nonprofits, who will be sharing information about their services

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank will host its annual Spring Festival on Friday, bringing vendors together for a community barbecue.

Claire Jones, office manager at the food bank, said Monday that the event will feature a wide swath of vendors, including lots of nonprofits, who will be sharing information about their services.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula, Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic, Kenai Local Food Connections, PCHS, Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association and ReGroup will be among the attendees, she said.

The food bank will be offering ice cream floats and sundaes, and doing a variety of giveaways featuring swimming and outdoors gear.

An additional focus this year will be on the food bank’s garden, which Jones said has seen a lot of support from local businesses and engagement from the people who use it. They’ll give tours and showcase the developing space.

“This is one of my favorite events,” Jones said. “Just an opportunity to give to the community.”

She said it’s free, growing every year, and a space where the food bank, vendors and attendees get to have fun together.

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank’s Spring Festival will be held Friday, June 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank.
