Groceries hard to come by in Quinhagak after air carrier route change


January 17, 2017

KYUK, Bethel:  The village of Quinhagak has not had a shipment of food in over two weeks due to a damaged runway, bad weather, and a change in air carriers. While deliveries have been less than reliable over the last two years, people say that this is the worst it’s been.

Audio Transcript:  Walk into the village store in Quinhagak and you’ll see empty shelves where food should be.

“There’s no bread, no eggs, all the little things you expect in a store,” said Warren Jones, who runs the store owned by the local native corporation.
