Food Distribution

The Hoonah Native Forest Partnership Crew and local youth have been picking and preparing food for distribution to our elders and community. We’ll have fire weed jelly, jarred fish, canned beach asparagus, pickled beach asparagus, and blueberries on hand! If you see our TRAYLS or HNFP crew tell them thanks!
