Tuesday, Feb. 25
Last day for the Ocracoke Strong Kitchen with homemade tuna salad sandwiches for lunch for fulltime residents. The following is from a Facebook post by Jason Wells, who spearheaded the kitchen a few days after Dorian:  “Once I figure out how much money is left over (from donations), a portion of that will go to the Bread of Life Food Pantry, and the rest will be put in a fund at the Life Saving Church and will be on standby when the next emergency or disaster situation arises.  It’s been an honor and a privilege to work alongside some awesome men and women and help provide some hot free meals to the people of Ocracoke.  Time for me to put my full attention on our house and restaurant. I love you all.”
