Food services reopen

This week restaurants across the state have been reopening after getting the go-ahead from county governments. We talk with a local restaurateur and the Hawaii Restaurant Association. We also check in on how grocery stores are doing as lots of people cook from home. Click here for information on the Made in Hawaii Festival. Click here for more information on the Hawaii Food Industry Association.

Reactions from Honolulu's Chinatown.

A proposal by the Institute for Human Services and the City & County of Honolulu would have opened a homeless triage center on Beretania Street. Community opposition led to the plans withdrawal. We check in with community groups.
