Lifeline Outreach OBX and the culinary outreach organization, Mise en Place, are joining forces to offer a new way to feed the Tri-villages and Hatteras Island communities.
The two organizations are sponsoring a new soup kitchen, starting May 16, to allow folks to enjoy a home-cooked meal and a little comradery with neighbors, while still maintaining social distancing guidelines.
“Saturday is a Drive-through event,” explains Lifeline Outreach OBX Administrator, Rev. Wade Weigel, “We’ve had donations from Conner’s Supermarket, Alex’s Shrimp Shack, Tarheel Produce, [and] C & J Produce to help make this event possible. It’s truly a community effort.”
Fresh Hatteras clam chowder is on the menu for Saturday’s soup kitchen session, and folks will be served starting at 3:30 p.m. at the Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo Community Building on Myrna Peters Road in Rodanthe. Soup will be available until supplies run out, and servers will be focusing on sanitation and safety, in order to feed the community in a clean and stress-free environment.
Though the Soup Kitchen is a new initiative from the Salvo-based Lifeline Outreach OBX, it is by no means the organization’s only effort to help provide food and support for Tri-village residents. The local organization continues its twice-weekly food pantry, with a variety of groceries that are wide open and available to anyone in need.
Folks who are interested in helping or learning more about the Lifeline Outreach OBX Center, (which is a 100% non-profit, non-denominational organization), can check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LifelineOutreachOBX/, or can stop by during the food pantry’s hours of operations, which are Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and Saturdays from 1 to 3 p.m.
