Lifesaving Church’s Bread of Life Food Pantry, temporarily located in the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, will reduce its open hours to 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays, effective today (Feb. 14). 

This change is in preparation for the pantry’s move back to its original home at the Lifesaving Church, after which the service will still be available to residents in need, but with reduced hours. The current timeline for that move is in roughly six weeks. 

As a reminder, the Bread of Life Food Pantry is a resource for full-time residents of Ocracoke Island.

Neither the pantry nor the OVFD are locations for unvalidated donation drop offs.

The pantry exclusively accepts and provides non-perishable food and daily use items such as laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. These conditions are also in preparation for the imminent move.

Please contact with any questions about the pantry, donations, or general relief inquiries.
