Jacob Wright works a barbecue grill by Beluga Lake on Lake Street on Monday, Aug. 26, 2019, in Homer, Alaska. Wright has been offering free food and coffee at the roadside stand and before that at Baycrest Hill. A recent arrival to Homer with his wife and two children, Wright said when he first came to Homer six weeks ago, he had mechanical troubles and then someone stole his wallet with all his gas and cards. People helped him get back on his feet, and now he’s returning the favor by offering free food. People also have given him donations of food and fish to keep his grill going. “We’re giving back to the community that helped us,” Wright said. “…This is the Alaska spirit. This is what Alaska is all about.”
