The Baptists on Mission, who along with the Salvation Army had prepared three meals a day for Ocracoke Islanders post-Hurricane Dorian, have departed the island, but locals and off-island friends are stepping in, weather dependent, to prepare free meals.

From Ocracoke Disaster Relief: “Thank you so much to everyone. What an amazing, incredible thing to have food service covered for the next week! We are constantly in awe of the love and support we receive. Thank you, all!”
