While some people are enjoying fair food this week, others are cooking out at a special picnic.

The Lehigh Conference of Churches Soup Kitchen held a picnic Thursday to show appreciation for volunteers and for those who use its services.

Burgers and hot dogs lined the grill, and kids got their faces painted at St. Paul Lutheran's Church on South Eighth Street in Allentown.

The soup kitchen has been serving the community for 60 years.
